Cirium records modest increase in global pax flights

Posted 1 May 2020 · Add Comment

According to new analysis from Cirium, there has been an uptick in global passenger flights over the last week – as Asia-Pacific countries such as China begin to relax travel restrictions.

Cirium analysis also shows that 130 passenger jets were added to the active global fleet since yesterday’s update. This takes the overall proportion of stored aircraft down to approximately 62% of the global fleet, or 16,300 aircraft.
