European Private Aviation in 2020 – Part 2

Just 5% of private jet departures in 2020 were to destinations outside Europe. The just over 29,000 departures recorded a decrease of -23.1% compared to the previous year. 

Departures from Europe behave unevenly depending on where the destination is located, with very significant drops in the number of flights to North America and Asia and a striking increase in the number of flights to the Caribbean.

European Private Aviation in 2020 – Part 1

Europe is home to several of the world's largest economies and, as such, boasted a dense network of air connections with countless options for both intra-European and intercontinental flights until the beginning of 2020. The arrival of SARS-CoV-2 has led to countless mobility restrictions and frequent airspace closures. Travel bans have led to a dramatic decline and, in many cases, the disappearance of several of the previously available air links.

Worldwide Private Aviation in 2020. Part 2

In addition to the number of departures and their evolution over time, there is one piece of information that should be analysed regarding private aviation, as it may be particularly revealing. We are talking about the category of the aircraft operated, something that we might associate with the cabin class in standard commercial flights. This type of data can reveal important implicit information about the flight, the charterer, the purpose of the trip and the passengers’ motivation.

Worldwide Private Aviation in 2020. Part 1

The traffic data recorded worldwide in the commercial aviation sector throughout 2020 are very bleak and show widespread falls of over 70% in both departures and passenger numbers. These figures are even worse if we factor in the drop in revenues that airlines have recorded throughout the year. This disastrous situation of the industry is widespread, with certain markets falling even harder than these shocking figures. This is not the case, however, when we look at data for the private aviation sector, where we have observed a moderate fall of -24.4% globally, despite the numerous and intermittent closures of different airspaces throughout the world.

Private Aviation in 2020. Introduction

2020 has been a truly disastrous year for humanity. Although the real scale of the consequences of the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak are not yet known, we all know that the impact will be large and very serious, especially in terms of the huge and growing number of deaths worldwide. 

The economic impact, too, has yet to be verified in detail, but we already know that some sectors will be particularly hard-hit, with closures and job losses. The outlook as of today is probably the bleakest and most disheartening in post-war times and does not show many reasons for hope.

Private Jet Categories

Private aircraft production is primarily concentrated around a dozen or so manufacturers. These companies usually have little relationship with commercial aircraft manufacturers, although they do share suppliers of some elements such as navigation and engines. 

However, there is a greater diversity of models compared to commercial aircraft families, that come with fewer alternatives. This model diversity is further enhanced by the multiple cabin configuration options, making every one of the more than 33,300 currently active private aircraft operated by over 16,500 private aviation airlines virtually "unique".
