FlightAware Reports that Business Aviation Traffic is Up
Daniel Baker, CEO of FlightAware, reported on June 22 that "On Saturday, June 20, business aviation traffic surpassed 2019 numbers for the first ime since the initial decline with 2.5% more flights than the same day last year. Weekday recovery still has ground to make up but continues to trend upward."
From June 14 to 21, the FlightAware data indicates that U.S. business aviation flying continued to move forward, decreasing only 17.3 percent—or 82.7 percent of prior-year levels—from the same day-of-week adjusted period a year ago. This was in comparison to airline traffic, which was down nearly 69 percent year-over-year last week.
