EUROCONTROL Draft Traffic Scenarios for September 2020 - February 2021

Impact of State restrictions, uncoordinated approach and uncertainty over COVID-19.

To help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the aviation sector, at EUROCONTROL we are developing traffic scenarios to illustrate the possible impact of the extent to which “COVID-compliant operational procedures” for airlines and airports are common across all European States.

We revised downwards our Draft Traffic Scenarios up to February 2021.

Under our new “Current Status Scenario”, the total number of flights expected in Europe is anticipated to be 55% lower than in 2019, a drop of 6 million fewer flights, or a further 1 million reduction in European flights than previously anticipated.
