EUROCONTROL European Aviation Overview

EAO 2024 banner

EUROCONTROL's European Aviation Overview provides a detailed snapshot of the latest Network trends.

It uses the latest traffic data to show how States, airports and airlines are performing, with further analysis of market segments, fuel prices, and delays.

Headlines for 06-12 May 2024

  • The network recorded 30,647 average daily flights (+5% vs 2023). The average number of flights was slightly higher (+2.3%) than the previous week’s average. Flights continue to recover and were just 2% below the 2019 levels during Week 19.
  • At country level, the top 10 states together recorded a 3.1% increase in the number of flights compared to the previous week.
  • On average, the top 10 carriers all together deployed the same capacities (+0.1%) as they did last week.
  • En-route ATFM delays averaged around 41,000 minutes per day (1.34 min/flight), +42% compared to the previous week. This increase is explained by both capacity/staffing issues (accounting for 61% of the en-route AFTM delays) and weather issues (accounting for 35%) affecting mostly France, Switzerland and the Balkans.
  • The average jet fuel price in Europe reached 2.46 USD/gallon on 10 May 2024 (-2% over two weeks).

Note

The next edition of the European Aviation Overview, covering the whole of 2023, will be released early in January.
