This summer saw a rise in commercial flights across the European Union but they are still lower than pre-pandemic status.

Commercial flights in the 27-country bloc increased by 72.8% in July, year-on-year, and 47.6% in August, according to data available.

However, these figures are about a third below what they were before COVID-19.

479,000 flights took off last month, compared to 696,000 in August 2019.

Greece’s tourism industry has had the best improvement, with the commercial flights down just 7% in August.

It is compared to the same month in 2019.

Romania and Croatia followed, with commercial flights down by 18% and 21.5% compared to what it was two years ago.

To boost tourism, EU countries introduced the EUDCC vaccine passport in early July.

It allows people who have been fully vaccinated, tested negative for COVID-19 or recently recovered from the disease, to travel easily within the EU.

Slovenia, Ireland and Finland have experienced the worst recoveries, where commercial flights are 53.5%, 54.5% and 60% down compared to pre-pandemic.
