COVID19 Impact on European Air Traffic


EUROCONTROL Comprehensive Assessment

Air Traffic situation: Wednesday 10 June 2020


& mid Week 24 (08-10 June 2020)
(compared with equivalent period in 2019)

Key Highlights
• 7,323 flights yesterday 10 June (+9.2% against Wednesday 3 June)

• Trend is up with a large pick-up expected from 22 June. By mid-July, we expect 12,400
flights, which is expected to rise as more flights are lodged (mainly intra-European).

• Chinese domestic now at 88% of 2019 levels with load factors averaging at 65.2%.
International volumes remain low.

• North American planning a resumption of services on the North Atlantic to


approximately +35% of normal capacity over the coming weeks.

• July schedules for Europe are now clearer for many intra-Schengen operations.

• New quarantine procedures introduced in UK and Ireland is effectively preventing


operations planning for July to those States.

• The EASA/ECDC guidelines have been helpful but the temptation to locally modify them
is not helpful.

• The traffic scenarios we projected on 24 April remain valid for a coordinated opening
and EUROCONTROL is becoming more optimistic.
1. Summary points on the network situation:

• NM Network flights Wed 10 June: 7,232 flights -79.5% (28,038 fewer flights)

2. Return to Operations

• Latest EUROCONTROL European Network Operations (NOP) 2020 Recovery Plan:


https://www.eurocontrol.int/news/eurocontrol-nm-publishes-network-recovery-plan
[NOP 2020 Recovery Plan covers a rolling four-week period and is updated by the EUROCONTROL
Network Manager on a weekly basis. It consolidates data from around 350 airlines, 68 area
control centres (ACCs), 55 airports and 43 State.]
o As per 5 June 2020 publication: The network traffic is expected to reach around 9,000
flights during the second half of June 2020, getting close to 10,400 flights on some days
in early July.
o Further indications since the last publication: Week of 6 July – 12 July could see up to
12,400 flights

Average Daily Traffic


EUROCONTROL European Network Operations (NOP) 2020 Recovery Plan, 5 June 2020

• European Airline Examples


o Wᴉzz Air growth continued with movements up +50% week-on-week, connections being
re-established, examples include Gatwick, Barcelona and Ben Gurion.
o The growth in Turkish Airlines traffic is largely domestic, a full relaunch of International
traffic is being held back by the combination of local and international travel
restrictions.
o The gradual increase in Lufthansa’s movements (week-on-week from 165 to 176) is a
quiet restoring of routes or increase in frequency Germany and other NM_AREA states
since Monday 01 June.
• Return to Operations – North America
(sourced via US FAA and OAG)
o The number of departure seats totalled 5.57 million (w/c May 25), a modest rise of 1.4%
compared with the previous seven days. However, the market remains 77% smaller
than the same week a year ago. The US accounted for 5.35 million seats last week, while
there were 214,910 departure seats in Canada.
o The upward trend appears set to continue over the coming weeks as airlines gradually
begin to restore routes and frequencies. The latest schedules data shows that capacity
from and within North America during June 2020 is expected to be about 3.28 million
departure seats, a rise of 32% compared with May.

o North American Operations – Return to Operations Examples:

Southwest Airlines
o Rremains the largest carrier in North America by capacity, offering 1.55 million seats
last week. This is equivalent to 39% of its weekly capacity a year ago.

United Airlines
o As of July 06, United will add flights to London, Munich, Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin,
Tel Aviv and Zurich.
o 14 additional daily flights will be added in August to those same destinations. The rest
of their international European schedule has been pushed for an October 24 decision.

Delta Airlines
o June schedule will include flights to Amsterdam, London and Tel Aviv
o July schedule will add 8 additional daily flights
o August schedule will add approximately 30 daily flights
o Delta will double its domestic capacity in July from May, after adding back 100 flights
in June.

American Airlines
o On June 4 resumed service to Amsterdam, Frankfurt Paris and London.
o American Airlines will operate 55% of its original domestic schedule in July, citing
consistent improvement in summer leisure travel demand.

• Return to Operations - Focus on China

o For the three weeks beginning May 11, scheduled domestic capacity was 80% as much
as a year earlier or just below, compared with an average of 63% for most of March and
April. This has since increased to 88% and the schedules for next week show 96% of last
year’s equivalent domestic capacity is planned
o Domestic passenger load factors have been weak. For May, the average was 65.2% with
only a faint upward trend, according to Chinese data firm Variflight. This is not a result
of regulation: there is no limit in China on passenger load factors or spacing on domestic
flights to minimize infection, though international flights cannot be more than 75% full.
