Up to the beginning of this year London was considered the best connected city in the world thanks to its many airports and the number of flights that landed and took off daily. But now everything has changed.
Unsurprisingly, London has not been had the usual number of passengers that use its airports every day due to the COVID-19 crisis and also because of the UK quarantine laws. It goes without saying that London has had far fewer flights in the past 8 months.
Compared to last year, the number of flights even dropped by two thirds. The decline in flights has not only occurred in Europe but other non-European countries have had a smaller decline and therefore Shanghai, which was in second place, now overtakes London as the best connected city in the world.
