ACI-LAC Airport Traffic to August and 2020 Projections

ACI-LAC Airport Traffic to August and 2020 Projections   Source: ACI-LAC   The passenger traffic in August 2020 at airports in Latin America and the Caribbean was 75.8% below the same month in 2019.

ACI recommends governments that rather than quarantines, which kill demand, robust testing programs are a far better option.   The severe reduction in passenger traffic will [...]
