90% passengers feel air travel safe mode of transport, says Bengaluru airport survey

BENGALURU: Voice of Pax, a survey conducted by Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) to understand passenger perception and expectation on air travel amid Covid-19 pandemic, has revealed 90% of passengers considered air travel much safer compared to the other modes.

According to the findings, 87% participants also felt airports are safer compared to train and bus stations. The higher safety perception associated with air travel and airports have been improving through the weeks owing to various safety measures implemented at the airport, the BIAL said in a press release.

The survey is being held in five phases. During the three concluded phases, more than 3500 passengers were covered using a systematic random sampling methodology, chosen from a database of over 150,000 previous passengers from across age, profession, group size, frequency of flying and sector of flying, the press release added.

A fourth of the respondents said they intend to take a flight in the next one month after reopening. About 19% appeared to be undecided about their intent to travel. However, the comfort levels associated with air travel progressively increased to 24%, after the conclusion of the third phase. Work related travel was cited as the most important reason for their travel intent at 60%, while personal was the next at 30%.
