We have our data updated through June 2021 and can demonstrate that the US air travel market maintained its summer recovery.

It appears that the US vaccine levels have provided air travelers with the confidence to return to the skies.  China’s air travel market saw a decline in June. 

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.

Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.

  1. Most of the Middle East countries including Israel have very few internal domestic routes and rely mainly on international travel mostly to Europe and there lies the challenge.
