European Business aviation traffic tracker (June 2021)
Using EUROCONTROL data, we have compiled the European Business aviation traffic figures for June 2021.
In this report, you will find detailed information on European Business aviation traffic, in a geographic and weekly breakdown.
The summer of 2020, a traditionally active period for air transport, was marked by a resurgence of activity for business aviation in Europe, (albeit far outside the industry’s “classic” values). One year later, in June 2021, Business aviation seems to be back to pre-crisis levels of activity in a number of dimensions, although major trends confirm that usage is different.
- With over 72,000 business jet flights (2,400 daily flights), June 2021 marks the highest level of activity since July 2019. Among the major Business aviation markets, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Spain exceed in June their 2019 levels.
- For the continent as a whole, the January-June 2021 period now exceeds the equivalent activity levels of 2020.
- Commercial Business aviation records more movements in June 2021 than in 2019. Only private Business aviation remains behind for the moment. The trend is the same for the aircraft used, with all categories of aircraft subject to this upturn, except for heavy jets and bizliners, confirming a change in usage. Finally, a rapid upturn in intra-European travel is confirmed (almost back to pre-crisis levels). Extra-European travel, mainly long-haul, remains below its normal level.
