Cirium: Upward trend at European airports

Cirium tracking data shows Europe’s top five airports for scheduled passenger jet operations have collectively recorded a steady upward trend in activity.

The trend was led by Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG), which had recovered to just over 41% of 2019’s level of daily flights by Sunday 26th July, on a seven-day rolling average basis.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, London Heathrow and Frankfurt had restored scheduled flight arrivals to approximately 36%, 31% and 29% respectively, compared with Sunday 28th July 2019.

Meanwhile, Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport was at 23% of last year’s level.

Across all European airports, just under 2,900 passenger jets were tracked making at least one scheduled landing on 26th July, compared with nearly 6,400 on the equivalent day a year earlier. The vast majority of these were Airbus A320s (more than 1,200) and Boeing 737s (nearly 950), reflecting the faster recovery of domestic and intra-regional services compared with long-haul widebody flights.
