Passenger traffic was down 95 per cent in June compared to the previous year because of the introduction of quarantine rules that results in a 10 per cent occupancy cut. The numbers are barely an improvement compared to April and May.
'While the announcement of so-called travel corridors taking in 74 countries holds out some hope for a recovery in demand, efforts to remove the quarantine completely need to be stepped up,' said Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye.
Meanwhile, Britain??s Airport Operators Association demanded a 12-month business-rate holiday for England and Wales.
British airports have paid more than GBP70 million (US$88 million) in rates since March despite the lockdown.
