European travelers expect smooth experience this summer

Air passengers are anticipating a smooth travel experience this summer, as most of the issues that caused disruptions last year have been addressed

May 22, 2023

A survey by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) of nearly 5,000 consumers in 11 countries found that 80% were expecting a “smooth” travel experience when flying in the coming peak months.

Key takeaways

  • The sector is bracing itself for a major increase in traffic this summer with hopes that there will not be a repeat of last year’s staffing problems;
  • IATA said that flight bookings for departures between May and September were around 35% higher than this time last year, with Europe forecast to see a 39.9% rise in passenger numbers;
  • While some disruptions can be expected, there is a clear expectation that the ramping-up issues faced at some key hub airports in 2022 will have been resolved.
