A snapshot of the week’s aviation performance in Europe
With 2022 drawing to a close, overarching conclusions are being drawn about the performance of the aviation industry this year. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) semi-annual report on the Global Outlook for Air Transport stated:
“In Europe some airlines’ financial performance has been curtailed by the war in Ukraine. Nevertheless, we expect the region to return to profitability in 2023 when a net profit of USD 612 million is forecast, following the USD 3.1 billion loss likely in 2022.” See more from this report here.
It is useful to contextualise these big picture predictions with a more detailed breakdown. Eurocontrol provides statistics and forecasts offering a detailed picture of European aviation performance. The latest weekly network overview is below, showing the top five aircraft operators, airports, and states as well as a rich breakdown of flight numbers, percentage of delays, and more compared against 2019 statistics.
To observe gradual shifts in the last half of the year, the same weekly network overview for previous dates can be found below. The data chosen shows the network overview for the corresponding week to the above (the second full week of the month) for alternate months since August.
With growth predicted for the European aviation industry, it is useful to see how airlines and airports are performing on a weekly basis within Europe.
