European Aviation Sees Gradual Revival After COVID-19 Shutdown

New data from Cirium, a travel data, and analytics company, revealed a positive increase in tracked passenger jet activity for western Europe-based operators. The move is led by France, Italy, and Germany where travel restrictions are gradually eased. Flights operated for these three countries scheduled on June 15th were still down 85-87% compared to the same day year earlier.

UK and Ireland based operators continued to lag behind 

Meanwhile, the UK and Ireland-based operators continued to drop back following their mainland European peers.  Aviation demand is suppressed by quarantine measures and arriving passengers had to self-isolate for 14 days. Tracked flights for the UK and Ireland were down 97% on the same day last year.

However, UK operators saw the biggest week-on-week rise (67%) in tracked passenger jet flights – albeit from a very low base, (when flights flown on June 15th is compared with June 8th). An additional 165 commercial passenger jets have also been ‘in service’ in the last 24 hours, as classified by Cirium. The total number of passenger aircraft in storage comes down to 12,552 (48% of the global fleet) and increases the number of in-service jets to 13,636 (52% of the global fleet) as of June 17th.
