EBAA BizAv traffic numbers confirm sustainable growth
The European Business Aviation Association has released business aviation traffic figures for Europe over the month of September that have confirmed 2017’s sustained growth, with a 5.7% rise in September traffic compared to the same period last year.
And with 3,500 more flights than in 2016, September’s figures mark 11 consecutive months of growth in Europe.
Brandon Mitchener, CEO of EBAA, citing data provided by Eurocontrol, said: “Our sector’s monthly movements in September did not disappoint, notching up the 11th straight month of sustained business aviation traffic and capping three quarters of strong growth in 2017.
“Concretely, an average of 120 additional business aviation flights took place per day between January and September 2017 when compared with the same period last year; this only confirms the sector’s positive outlook.”
The Eurocontrol traffic figures cover departures, arrivals, internals and overflights (DAIO) of business aircraft in the Single European Sky area.
