Yes, it’s our annual analysis of the 300-plus European airports that we have traffic data for to see which country markets and airports have had a good (or bad) year. Only two countries saw a drop in air travel in 2011. Can you guess which ones? And which airports feature in our top 10 of […]

Veteran German fails to take pole: early summer capacity up 4.6% in Europe; LCCs make up for flag carrier downsizing
We’ve looked at capacity developments across Europe this summer by airport, country and airline. Who’s growing and who’s still shrinking, and by how much? We’ve got three graphs that summarise a huge amount of information.

London still best-connected city in Europe despite Heathrow’s limitations; Dublin and Rome lose most routes during 2009
How do the biggest cities for air travel in 16 European countries compare? How many destinations do they serve? And which have gained (and lost) most routes during the last year? Which 28 destinations are no longer served directly from London airports?
No, honest. We were surprised as well that over 40% of Europe’s airports for which we were able to collect traffic trend data for May reported growth. Across all 215 airports we estimate traffic was down around 8%, but which countries did best? And how does traffic ‘growth’ vary by airport size?
This weekend sees the start of the summer season and our analysis reveals that airlines at European airports are offering around 5% fewer seats compared with a year ago.
