Demand for air travel to France and Nice, the country's second most popular destination after Paris, has dropped again after an attacker killed 84 people in the city on the French Riviera on July 14, according to travel data analysis company ForwardKeys. France's tourism industry had yet to fully recover from assaults in Paris in January and November last year, which were also claimed by Islamic State, when Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a truck into a crowd of revelers on Nice's Promenade des Anglais. Daily net international bookings to Nice for future arrivals, combining cancellations of previous bookings and a decline in new bookings, dropped by 57 percent in the period July 15-23, compared with the previous year, ForwardKeys said on Thursday.
