Flight market in Albania, less than 7 thousand passengers for the month of May
The flight market remained virtually blocked for the month of May. According to data from the Institute of Statistics, the number of passengers in air transport was less than 7 thousand, down 97% compared to May last year. Although the number of passengers increased by about three thousand more compared to April, the market still remained far from normal. Even for May, flights were mainly in the function of repatriating citizens.
Closing borders and blocking flights due to Covid 19 has caused the first five months of the year to close with a negative balance and the number of passengers in air transport fell by 52% compared to the first five months of last year.
For some of the main destinations, flights have resumed only in mid-June, but with drastic restrictions on the movement of citizens. At the moment, citizens of EU countries or Albanians with a residence permit can travel to the European Union. For citizens residing in Albania, the doors of the Union are still closed and are not expected to open even after July 1.
