The partial lockdown is affecting the Dutch aviation sector too.
Eindhoven Airport has seen the number of passengers fall considerably since the government introduced stricter anti-corona measures. The number of flights arriving and departing from the airport has decreased considerably since 14 October, That’s when the lockdown took effect.
The week of 5 October is the last full week before the new rules were implemented. Then a total of 338 flights arrived and departed from the airport. These flights carried some 34,000 passengers.
Two weeks later, that number had fallen by a third. There were still 276 flights departing from the airport, but they only carried 22,000 people.
