Number flights daily in US v Europe currently

Wed Mar 25, 2020 7:58 am

Hello Everyone,

Is there data on the following that people would know to assist my questions below?

1. Average number of weekday flights in USA and Europe before current situation.
2. Current number of weekday flights in USA and Europe now.

I'm just trying to see how both regions have changed over time and the comparison. Amounts can be approximations of course rather than to the single unit of course.

Thanks for any thoughts and insight.

Warm regards to all and best wishes of course.

Some anecdotal information:

I live in the Southeast corner of the UK. I often leave my SBS box running all day just to see what's been flying about. Before Covid-19, I would typically pick up around 1,500 flights (including local light aircraft). Yesterday the number was barely over 300.
