A MIMS report confirms the growth in traffic ferries in the second quarter of 2022

It is higher than the pre-pandemic level. In recovery the cruises, although still lower than 2019 data

The second Report of the Observatory on trends in mobility of passengers and cargo, which is processed from the Observatory on mobility trends during the Covid-19 health emergency prepared by the Structure Mission Technique of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility, highlights a clear recovery in application for all modes of transport during the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same period last year year, with increases for the various sectors between +3% for the air traffic of goods and +573% for cruise services.

Very strong positive variations are recorded for the High Speed (+212%) and for air passenger transport (+447%). Growing local public transport is also the case, with an increase in users equal to +18%, and the road haulage of goods (+7%). The latter, together with air freight transport and traffic of ferries, exceeds 2019 levels. Scraps of less than +10% compared to the pre-pandemic values are recorded, however, for the road transport with light vehicles, for the demand for services intercity rail and for transport passenger flows local public.

In particular, comparing the data for the second quarter of 2022 with those pre-Covid (same period of 2019), the Report quarterly, published today and based on the data made available by the national multimodal operators, by the Directorates-General of the MIMS and those contained in the open source databases of the main national and international mobility players, notes that road traffic of heavy-duty vehicles accelerates of displacements, now stably higher than those of 2019 (+3% on the motorway network and +6% on the ANAS network). For traffic road and rail passenger level the level of the second quarter is still lower than that of 2019 (with values between -3% and -21% respectively), but for both flows there is a clear improvement compared to the situation recorded in the first quarter of 2022. In fact, the road sector recovers four percentage points on the ANAS network and five on the motorway network, while the railway network shows an increase by 21 and 18 percentage points for Alta services respectively Speed and Intercity. In local public transport the demand for passenger mobility in the second quarter of 2022 is still about -8% lower (almost -20% in the single regional rail transport) compared to the same period as 2019, but even in this case there is a clear recovery in comparison as recorded in the first quarter of 2022 (+17 percentage points).

In the two-month period April-May of this year, the air transport of passengers shows an increase of +447% compared to the same period of 2021, even if the flows are still lower by -13% to pre-pandemic ones. In parallel, air freight transport recorded an increase of +2% compared to the corresponding period of 2019 and an increase of +3% compared to the same two months of 2021.

As regards maritime traffic on ferries, in the period April-May 2022 there is an increase of +7% compared to the pre-pandemic data and an increase of +84% compared to the same period of 2021. For cruises, traffic in the period April-May 2022 marks an increase of +573% compared to the same two-month period of the previous year, although it still appears to be -59% lower compared to that of 2019.
