Although the first months of 2021 showed no signs of recovery (January saw 68% reduction compared with same month in 2019, February a 73% reduction, March a 71% reduction and April a 70% reduction), the situation started to change in subsequent months.

In May, passenger flights were 67% lower than the same period in 2019), in June it was reduced by 54% and in August by 31%).

The EU countries with the lowest decreases in commercial flights in December 2021 were Croatia (6% reduction compared with December 2019), Greece (8% reduction) and Cyprus (9% reduction).

In contrast, flights decreased by more than 40% only in Czechia and Austria (both 41%). The rest recorded decreases of less than a third.

Overall, when comparing the total of 2019 with the total of 2021, the country showing the most signs of recovery in terms of number of commercial flights was Greece (29% reduction), followed by Cyprus (38% reduction) and Luxembourg (39% reduction).

On the other hand, Ireland showed the least signs of recovery (64% reduction), followed by Slovenia and Czechia (both 62% reduction).
