Scheduled Aviation Snapshot Week 16 2021 vs Week 16 2019

28 Apr 2021

As previously reported in our Business Aviation bulletin, scheduled airline traffic is much slower to catch up with pre-pandemic traffic levels.


In Week 16 of 2021 global flight activity was down 43% compared to Week 16 in 2019.
Flight hours were down 46% vs Week 16 2019.
The average sector length was down 5% vs Week 16 2019.

All our comparisons are 2021 vs 2019. We believe this comparison is more informative, given the rapid decline in aviation traffic at the beginning of the pandemic.
