In what has been an action packed June, we bring you the highlights of what has been an eventful month in aviation. From record traffic expectations to a new supersonic airplane and most importantly, movement in the job market.
Emirates has announced that it expects its highest levels of passenger traffic to go through Dubai International Airport the weekends of the 2nd to 4th of July and 9th to 11th of July. This coincides with the break up of schools both in the United Arab Emirates and in many countries in Europe. With families looking to reunite for the summer, the first weekends of July typically kick off the summer travelling season and a passenger profile shift from business trips to family and leisure based travel. Emirates has also announced its ambition to restore up to 90 percent of its pre-pandemic flight network by the end of July.
This is quite impressive considering the fact that three of its largest markets remain closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Indian, UK and Australasian markets have long been key markets for the Dubai based carrier. With flights from India suspended until July 15th at the earliest and no sign of a reprieve from the UK and Australian markets. The airline will be hoping that the next two weekends will bring a much needed boost for the aviation sector.
