According to the OAG, the company that processes and distributes schedules for almost all the world's airlines, in 2007 there were 29,560,246 scheduled flights worldwide, or 80,987 individual takeoffs and landings a day.

I don't think OAG handles charter flights so the real total of airline flights would be somewhat higher.

I saw once that a Boeing 737 takes off or lands ever 3-4 seconds somewhere in the world
