As the world’s leading travel search engine, we’ve dug into our more than one billion consumer flight searches to shed a light on COVID-19’s impact and the road to travel’s return. From destinations with the largest declines in year-over-year search to emerging signs of recovery, here’s the latest on what air travel looks like in the midst of a global pandemic.

About the data

The data below represent indexed flight search volume across KAYAK brands in the listed origin countries. The data will be updated daily to reflect week over week and year over year changes in traveller interest. For year-over-year comparisons by day, we compare to the same day of the week from the same week in the previous year. For example, we’d compare Tuesday 3 March 2020 to Tuesday, 5 March 2019.
