We have our data updated through June 2021 and can demonstrate that the US air travel market maintained its summer recovery.
The following chart from The University of Oxford helps explain the story. China’s vaccination rates are significantly lower than that of the US. The chart shows that Canada has done a remarkable job with its vaccine rates topping Israel, the long-time leader in vaccination rates. Moreover, the Chinese vaccines have run into challenges. But even if the Chinese vaccine is less effective, it has not been a failure according to a CNN report.
What is odd is that Israel and Canada have kept their travel market very tight and allow minimum air travel. This is surely costing their economies, and doing even more damage to their travel sectors.
