The majority of segments of the transport sector have recorded a “remarkable” performance in recent months, indicates the Department of Studies and Financial Forecasts (DEPF), under the Ministry of Economy and Finance.
With regard to air transport activity, passenger traffic recovered 97% of its pre-crisis level, between May and November 2022, specifies the DEPF in its economic note for the month of December.
As for international traffic, which represented 90.2% of total traffic, during this same period, after representing 88.2% in 2019, it almost returned to its pre-crisis level (i.e. 99.1% of this traffic), adds the same source.
Also, for the months of May, July and October 2022, international passenger traffic exceeded its pre-crisis level, respectively, by 9.1%, 0.8% and 4.3%.
At the end of the first eleven months of 2022, national airports welcomed 18.5 million passengers, up 89.8% compared to the end of November 2021. Thus, at the end of November 2022, 80.2% of air traffic he pre-crisis year recovered after 63.7% at the end of June 2022 and 42.2% at the end of November 2021.
As for airport movements and air freight traffic, they represented at the end of November 2022, respectively, 82% and 74% of their flows recorded during the same period of 2019.
Regarding port activity, it improved relatively at the end of October 2022. Thus, 74 million tonnes of goods were handled in the ports managed by the ANP, down 1.9%, in annual variation, after -2.2% a month earlier, taking advantage of a 1% rise in October.
This decline is linked to the decline in export traffic of 17.9%, strongly mitigated by a good performance in the other segments of this traffic, in particular those of imports (+5%), from cabotage to imports (+ 53.9%) and export cabotage (+49.4%), explains the DEPF, noting that at the end of October 2021, this traffic was down 2.4%
