European business aviation flights dip

European business aviation flights in March 2018 declined by 3.6% overall compared to the previous year, according to the latest data from Hamburg-based analyst WINGX Advance. Business jet flights increased by some 0.4% YOY, while charter activity grew by some 6% but there was a 10% fall in private flights. WINGX managing director Richard Koe said: “The fall-off in activity this month bucks the recent growth trend. This may reflect some wavering in the economic outlook, especially in the UK, but it may also be a specific effect such as the earlier Easter holiday this year. This month still had growth in AOC/Charter, especially in business jets, in contrast to the marked fall in Private missions.”
