Eurotunnel’s July passenger traffic has rebounded significantly in July, coming in just over a fifth below last year’s carryings.
In total, Eurotunnel’s passenger shuttles carried 233,000 passenger vehicles in July, down from 294,000 last year – a decline of 21%.
This compares to a 69% year-on-year slump in June, 81% in May and 91% in April at the height of the UK and France’s Covid epidemics.
It is the highest rate of passenger carryings this year, and the nearest passenger numbers have come to recovering to last year’s levels since a 4% year-on-year increase back in February.
The figures illustrate the effect of the UK lifting its 14-day self-isolation requirement for arrivals from France on 10 July, while also reflecting the annual summer getaway.
