Airlines seeing high booking levels as international travel resumes

DUBLIN: Airlines including Emirates and Ryanair are anticipating an uptick in travel bookings as a result of the implementation of Digital Covid Certificates. Emirates’ Country Manager in Ireland has said that the airline expects a ‘”tsunami” of bookings.

Manager Enda Corneille said they are already seeing very strong advance bookings for the rest of the year, especially at Christmas. Mr Corneille said the digital certificate does not apply to Emirates, which flies from Dublin to Dubai. He stated that delays in allowing travel to countries such as Australia and New Zealand will restrict them from bringing back more capacity.

Ryanair believes international travel will return to “normal”

Ryanair CEO Eddie Wilson said that airline bookings are “very strong”. Mr Wilson believes that once travellers adapt to the usage of the Covid digital certificate system, international travel will return to “normal”.

According to the CEO, five million people travelled with Ryanair across Europe in June. While seat occupancy is expected to reach 95%, the real concern is the winter season, he said. Mr Wilson called on the Transport Minister Eamon Ryan to implement the Aviation Taskforce Report and introduce incentives to attract and retain airline traffic for the off-season.
