ISTANBUL (AA) – Roughly 59 million air passengers traveled to Germany this summer from April to October, an annual rise of 108.7%, according to official data released on Wednesday.

Around 54.6 million air passengers took flights from Germany to other countries in the same period, a yearly increase of 111%, the country’s statistical office Destatis reported.

The authority pointed out that air travel was “strongly affected” due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2021.

This year’s figures were still 23% lower than the summer of 2019, according to Destatis.

Spain was the most popular destination this summer with 8.97 million passengers, followed by Türkiye with 6.45 million, and Italy with 3.98 million.

On domestic routes, the number of passengers increased 84.2% to 4.46 million, Destatis added.
