OAG have released a new report that explores how the pandemic is influencing traveler decisions and what it will take for the aviation market to recover.
OAG surveyed over 4,000 global users of its flightview travel app, and found that overall fear levels over catching COVID-19 while flying are tepid, and most consumers are open to air travel. Key findings include:
- 69% intend to fly internationally within the next six months, while 79% have plans for domestic air travel.
- The eagerness to travel is more apparent among millennials and Gen-Z. Both generations are less apt to make travel adjustments and more eager to travel domestically compared to their worldwide counterparts.
- Nearly one-third have not and do not intend to change their travel habits.
- 76% of travelers agreed mask mandates are the most effective safety measure airlines and airports can implement, followed by improved cleaning procedures.
