IATA Traveller Survey
September 2021 results

REDUCE YOUR TRAVEL COSTS

IATA Traveller Survey – September 2021 results

IATA (the International Air Transport Association) has released the results from their September Traveller Survey.

The survey comprised 4,700 respondents across 11 markets and mainly focused on Covid-19 travel restrictions.

Overall, the survey concluded respondents felt that travel should be restored and the risks of the virus could be effectively managed. The main findings from the Traveller Survey include:

 

  • 73 per cent of respondents said their quality of life was suffering as a result of Covid-19
  • 67 per cent believe that most country borders should reopen (this has increased by 12 per cent from June’s survey)
  • 64 per cent of people think border closures are unnecessary and have not actually be effective in helping to contain Covid-19 (an increase of 11 per cent from June)
  • 80 per cent agreed that fully vaccinated traveller should be able to travel freely by air
  • 75 per cent of respondents think the cost of Covid testing is a major barrier when travelling, with 80 per cent believing the government should cover the cost.
  • 86 per cent of people surveyed still believe the Covid travel rules and regulations are confusing

 

Commenting on the survey, IATA Director General Willie Walsh said:

“People are increasingly frustrated with the Covid-19 travel restrictions and even more have seen their quality of life suffer as a result. They don’t see the necessity of travel restrictions to control the virus. And they have missed too many family moments, personal development opportunities and business priorities. In short, they miss the freedom of flying and want it restored. The message they are sending to governments is: Covid-19 is not going to disappear, so we must establish a way to manage its risks while living and traveling normally.”
