Number of travelers at airports not yet back to pre-corona levels | NOW

More than ten million people traveled to and from the main airports in our country in the first quarter. This means that the number of travelers is still below the level before the corona crisis.

In the first three months of 2019, more than seventeen million people traveled via Schiphol, Rotterdam The Hague Airport, Eindhoven Airport, Maastricht Aachen Airport and Groningen Eelde. This is evident from figures from the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) on Friday.

In each of the first three months, there were more airport passengers than in the same month a year earlier. In January and February, 2.8 and 3 million travelers flew to our airports respectively, compared to 910,000 in January and 520,000 in February 2021.

In March, 4.2 million people flew to and from the Netherlands, 3.6 million more than in March 2021 and almost 1.5 million more than in March 2020. In that year, many countries took restrictive measures for the corona virus around March 15 due to the corona pandemic. aviation.
