More airline seats

OAG (Official Airline Guide), the airline industry timetable provider, says that airlines worldwide will operate 5% more flights in July 2010 as compared to July 2009 validating the IATA report (see above) that a worldwide economic recovery is under way.  However traffic within North America, the world’s largest aviation market, stills reflects a slight decrease of 1% both in frequencies and offered seats.  Flight operations within Europe have increased by 24,198 flights to 623,637, an increase of 4%.  Offered seats reflect an increase of 6% with 4,627,834 more seats compared to the same month last year.  Traffic to/from Europe also reflects growth with an increase of 9% in the number of flights and 7% in offered seats. www.oag.com
