Det är tyst i europeiskt luftrum, för tyst.

EUROCONTROL Industry Monitor
Daily traffic in Europe decreased by 2.5% in February compared with the same month last year and was the quietest February since 2004. The Charter segment was the only to show some growth (+3.9%) on February last year whereas the pattern of growth for all other market segments continue much as in December and January: All-Cargo (-4.3%), Low-Cost (-2.8%), Scheduled (-2.4%) and Business Aviation (-0.6%) (EUROCONTROL, March).

In 2012 there was a total of 26,100 average daily flights in Europe. This is a decline of 2.67% compared to 2011. The decrease was spread unevenly across countries and market segments, with low cost and charter and eastern European countries seeing growth in numbers of flights while western Europe and the traditional market segments decreased.

In 2012, low-cost and chartered airlines saw increases of 1.4% and 2.6% respectively compared to 2011. In contrast, traditional scheduled air traffic – which accounts for half of total flights – business aviation and all-cargo suffered a decline of some 4-5% year-on-year.
