Targa Telematics mobility observatory confirms that airports in Italy have nearly recovered to pre-pandemic levels.

An analysis carried out by Targa Telematics, a company that manages more than two million connected and distributed assets, on the hourly data utilisation of airport vehicles reveals an almost complete recovery in the level of activity at airports in Italy.

In the first six months of 2022, Italian airports showed an 85% level of activity compared to the same period in 2019. 

Activity boomed in May 2022, where it peaked at 96% compared to the average of the first half of 2019.



Italian airports are approaching the level of activity that marked the pre pandemic year 2019.

Confirmation also comes from an analysis of data based on hourly airport vehicle usage data performed by Targa Telematics, a tech company specialising in the development of IoT solutions for connected mobility.

The company manages a total of more than two million connected and distributed assets, including vehicles operating within airports.

When analysing the average monthly hours of activity of each individual vehicle, it is evident that the level of activity of Italian airports in the first six months of the year totalled 85% of the level during the same period in 2019.

March and April 2022 were characterised by impressive performance, with activity reaching 90% and 91% of 2019 levels respectively. May saw a particularly significant increase, reaching 96% of the average of total operations registered during the first half of 2019.

There has been significant growth compared to 2021, which saw increased restrictions due to the health emergency. In fact, growth in airport activities during the first six months of 2022 is close to 100% higher than in the same period of the previous year.

According to the data, Italian airports are operating at the same level of UK airports, which have always been considered a landmark in terms of number of passengers and air traffic. In the first six months of 2022, in fact, UK airports likewise reached 84% of operations compared to the same period of 2019.
