HKIA passengers down 90% in March 2020


We plotted the state of travel going through HK International Airport. We added average passengers per flight which shows that even though actual flights are 82.1% down in March 2020 over March 2019, the number of passengers per flight has halved too meaning total passenger numbers have fallen 90%. So HKIA was averaging 19,200 passengers a day in March 2020 vs 214,000 in March 2019.

To think how much airlines used to book in cash advances on ticketing. That revenue is long gone putting further cash strains on the airlines.

On the flip side, cargo jet movements reached a peak number of 5,775 in March 2020 although average cargo tonnage is down by 20%.
