Despite predictions for a marginal upturn in the number of people travelling by air during 2021 driven by low cost carriers, actual passenger numbers will remain significantly lower compared to pre-pandemic levels following drastic declines the previous year. The pandemic had resulted in border closures and restrictions on mobility introduced in January 2020 in Taiwan, as the government implemented early containment measures as soon as the COVID-19 virus was identified.
With limitations on operations during the pandemic, airlines have been forced to consider different strategies in an attempt to offset significant losses. Providing cargo services has continued to be a popular option for airlines since 2020, with leading domestic charter airlines China Airlines and Eva Airways quickly shifting their business focus from passenger travel to transportation of cargo.
Due to the ever-changing situation influenced by the pandemic, and to address different border control policies, airlines have started to share instant updates on their websites. Passengers can enter their routes and nationality to find out required measures such as PCR tests and quarantine days of specific destinations.
With an early focus on promoting domestic tourism by industry players in Taiwan, and despite an ongoing preference amongst local consumers for land or rail travel for domestic leisure trips, domestic leisure travel by air is predicted to quickly recover to pre-pandemic levels in terms of number of trips. However, the number of passengers through airlines as a whole will struggle to fully recover by 2026 due to the severity of declines in 2020, despite predictions for dynamic growth rates over the first half of the forecast period.
