Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (Aerothai) has lowered its estimates of total domestic and international air travel in 2021 to 323,093 flights, a 38% reduction from its 518,790 flights estimate at the start of the year.

 

Aerothai vice-president Thinnakorn Chuwong said the rising number of COVID-19 infections in Thailand and overseas has caused domestic and international travel to decline, while the government’s measures, urging people to refrain from inter-provincial travel, will further decrease demand for domestic flights.

 

He said, however, that Aerothai estimates that the impact of the current wave of COVID-19 infections will last through May and recovery could start slowly from June onwards, coinciding with the period when the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand will ease restrictions on air travel.

What use do these numbers have?

Reduction of the estimates?

What about actual numbers?

And where are numbers from pre Covid 2019 for comparison?

 

 

Estimates are all they come up with, guesstimates at best, as for comparisons with 2018 forget it... they wouldn't survive the shock of seeing it in black and white.

Air travel is less than 38 percent, is that what they survey is trying to say, but got too optimistic.

   Where are the planes flying Internationally right now?  Yeah the freight flights are the majority

of any international flights.  Dream on.  

Geezer

Hi @sandyf. I guess the domestic Thai tourism is not going to fill the gaps left by lack of international tourism. 

 

What is your opinion?

It would have been much worse but for people trying to get out of Thailand, either to get vaccinated or just to avoid the place until they get their house in order.

 

I guess at least that's one positive outcome from the ongoing vaccine debacle.
