Traffic figures for European business aviation in June were up by 5.3% compared to a year earlier, continuing a positive trend that began in late 2016. This is according to the latest figures from the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA).
“Business aviation movements in Europe once again showed a healthy year-on-year increase this past month, marking eight consecutive months of sustained growth,” says Brandon Mitchener, EBAA CEO, citing data provided by Eurocontrol. “What is more, with +6.2% year-on-year growth for the January-June 2017 period, this is the strongest showing for this period in a decade.”
The Eurocontrol traffic figures cover departures, arrivals, internals and overflights (DAIO) in the Single European Sky area.
