THE LATEST INFORMATION, TOOLS AND SOLUTIONS TO INFORM YOUR DECISIONS

There are no changes to the formats this week – we’re reporting now on capacity and frequency on the basis of the last 12 months and the % change to the previous 12 months, and then the most recent 8 weeks and the % change to the same period last year.  

25-Jan-Seats-8-Week
  • This week continued lockdowns across many countries sees global capacity fall back to less than half of where it was this time a year ago, with capacity at 52% below the same week last year.
  • Global seats have now fallen back to 51.3m, a fall of 2m seats on last week.
  • A big contributor of that is Chinese capacity which has dropped back further again this week, down to 13 million seats from 14.4 last week, and is now sitting at 23% below the same week last year. This is following a number of localised lockdowns following the reporting of new COVID cases in and around Beijing.
  • Germany, Singapore and the UK are all now more than 85% below the same week last year.
  • Brazil, which had been seeing recovery each week, saw capacity fall back again this week slightly, to 40% below last year, with 117,000 seats taken out in the last week.
  • India continues to make positive progress, with weekly seats close to the 3m mark, and resulting in capacity sitting at -30% compared to the same week last year.

 

Monthly Global Scheduled Seats Change Year-over-Year

Scheduled capacity is still very fluid throughout the month. At the end of January we will update the chart below with the final January position and going forward this chart will be updated at the end of each month.
