THE LATEST INFORMATION, TOOLS AND SOLUTIONS TO INFORM YOUR DECISIONS

OAG has been tracking the effect of the current covid-19 epidemic on aviation capacity since the start of the year.

The following table shows the change in the number of global flights and flights departing from various countries since January 2020 vs the same period in the previous year. The data has been extracted for each week this year, starting on Monday 6th January. Data for January through to September is the cumulative data for the weeks starting in each of those months, while more recent data is displayed as the weekly variance against the same week in 2019.

NOTE: With the launch of the OAG Recovery Tracker we have amended the schedule data used for this table and accompanying charts to only include non-stop flights. Previously it included stopping flights. The data shown here has been adjusted accordingly for the full data series. This means that there are some small changes compared to data provided until the week of 20th July 2020, although the trends are very similar.

INSIGHTS

  • The reduction in the number of flights operated this week compared to the number operated in the same week last year is now at -45.3%. This is best weekly result since the week of 23rd March 2020 and demonstrates the steady, albeit slow, improvement in scheduled airline capacity that is taking place.
  • There are 843 more scheduled flights being operated this week than last week although an increase of over 2,000 flights in the US is offset by reductions elsewhere.
  • This week sees the reduction in flights from US airports improve to -37.1%, putting the US alongside India (-41.3%) and Japan (-35.3%), both of which also have large domestic markets.
  • Capacity was further reduced across all the major European markets this week as they continue in some form of lockdown.
