Network Tracker: the global market (w/e May 23, 2021)

Routes’ latest infographic looks at the current state of the world’s aviation market.

Global capacity rose by 3.2% last week (w/c May 17, 2021), equivalent to an increase of some 2 million seats, meaning the market is now 58.2% of its size in 2019.  

Data provided by OAG Schedules Analyser shows that Indonesia was the world’s major growth market in numerical terms last week, increasing capacity by more than 1 million seats compared with the previous seven days. This followed the lifting of restrictions imposed by the country’s government during Eid. 

The UK also recorded a significant leap in capacity, rising by 278,000 seats after the lifting of a ban on nonessential travel.
