Last week, the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation (EUROCONTROL) released its European Aviation Overview, which provides a detailed snapshot of the latest network trends. For the week of August 9th-15th, the agency said the network recorded 32,420 average daily flights, a 7% increase from 2022. The results indicate that the network remains stable by a difference of only -0.4% from the previous week.
