Aer Lingus Says Travel Recovery Has Been Slower Than Expected

Demand has been weaker than Aer Lingus expected five or six weeks ago amid continued coronavirus restrictions and opposition to international travel in Ireland, CEO Sean Doyle has said.

A "Negative" Narrative

"If we look at the wider demand, it is not recovering the way we would have hoped maybe five or six weeks ago...The narrative around travel has been negative in the period," Doyle stated.

Global Airlines' Forcast

Doyle's comments came as global airlines cut their coronavirus recovery forecast, saying that it will take until 2024 for passenger traffic to return to pre-crisis levels, which is a year longer than previously expected.
