Latin America: monthly air passenger traffic growth 2019-2020

The air passenger traffic to and from Latin America and the Caribbean amounted to 31.1 million passengers in March 2020. This represented a decrease of around 17.5 percent in comparison to the air traffic reported during the same month a year earlier. The abrupt decrease in the air passenger traffic was related with the COVID-19 outbreak, which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 12 2020. After the pandemic declaration was announced, most Latin American countries took action and began implementing travel restrictions, which explains the drop in air traffic in the region.
