The pandemic, which has now entered its third year, continues to impact various modes of transport. Road traffic volumes in January–March rose on the previous year, but remained slightly lower than in the pre-pandemic era. The knock-on effects of the war in Ukraine were most evident in train and air traffic. Use of the traffic data produced by Fintraffic, which is shared for use in applications such as navigators, reached a new record-breaking high. All these insights were gleaned from statistics published by Fintraffic in January–March.
Whereas the pandemic caused an unprecedented reduction in traffic in 2020, the lifting of restrictions in 2021 was reflected as an increase in various modes of transport. Demand for traffic data is also higher than ever before.
