Airlines – Quotes of the Week: They Said What?
Business aviation has slid in Europe: “The European market is showing predictable slowdown as leisure demand winds up, although the light jet charter market has stayed resilient. That may change in the second half of the month as holidays end. A key question for the industry going in to Q4 is whether the new first-time users of business aviation will stick. The planned cutbacks in regional airline services next month may provide some incentive.” Source: WINGXRead more

US Labor Day proves a damp squib for private flights
According to WingX's weekly Global Market Tracker, 90,000 business jet and turboprop flights have been operated in the first eight days of September, an eight per cent decline versus the same period in September 2019 and a deficit of around 7,000 flights. Comparing the last eight days with comparable days in 2019, the delta is twice as large at just under 16 per cent YOY. The most recent rolling seven-day average is 11,273 daily flight departures, down from the post-March high point of 11,728 flights, but well above the April trough of 3,500 flights per day. Since 1 March, global business aviation flights are down 35 per cent compared to last year. This trend is still far more resilient than scheduled aviation, which is 64 per cent behind last year's activity since March and still 57 per cent off so far this month.
