Development in the relevant markets

The environment for European passenger traffic deteriorated significantly in 2020 with the Covid-19 crisis. Contact and travel restrictions were more drastic and longer-lasting in many European countries than in Germany.

In addition, rising unemployment and declining wages and salaries had a negative impact on mobility demand and led to a significant reduction in volume sold.

Due to the unprecedented losses in the Covid-19 crisis, the transport industry and transport providers in numerous European countries received financial support. With the financial commitment, the Public Transport Authorities recognize the importance of local public transport even during the Covid-19 crisis.
