On this episode of AvTalk, we see how far air traffic fell in March and what we’re likely to see in April. We also take a look at some of the more interesting flights that airlines have operated in the past few weeks. And Georgios Hatzimanolis from Marine Traffic joins us to compare notes on what their data can tell us about how COVID-19 is affecting the global economy.
And the bottom falls out
The first week of March saw global traffic still up 4.5%, but the final week of the month traffic was down 55% from 2019 levels and traffic overall was 21.6% lower than 2019 in March. Airlines have reacted in different ways, but the number of flights continues to fall and the number of stored aircraft continues to rise.
