These are figures from April – June period, so were while the UK was still under CV-19 measures and therefore there was limited opportunity to fly in or out of the UK. However, they make for pretty sobering reading:
However with COP26 taking place and a call for a cut in global CO2 emissions, maybe this should be the new future, even post CV19?
VisitBritain’s Analysis on Q2 IPS Data During the first half of 2021 (January to June 2021), the IPS survey was operational at UK airports only. In ordinary times surveying would also be conducted at UK tunnel terminals (Eurostar and Eurotunnel) as well as some UK sea ports (e.g. Dover), but this was not possible during this period. Therefore, the data presented below and elsewhere on our website for Q1 & Q2 2021 is for air passengers only and is not comparable with historical UK total data. The comparisons made compare April-June 2021 air data to April-June 2019 air data only as no equivalent is available for 2020. The sample for this period is very low so extreme caution should be used when interpreting results.
