Traffic increased by 1.1% in May 2019i.
Average daily traffic in May 2019 was 31,834, the highest ever recorded for May.
The traffic increase of 1.1% for May was at the low end of the forecast published in February 2019.
This graph shows the variation in average daily traffic for the last 12-month period relative to the previous 12-months. The average daily traffic from June 2018 to May 2019 was 3.1% higher than the average from June 2017 to May 2018.
Six states added more than 50 flights per day to the European localii traffic growth. Italy was the top contributor with 160 additional flights per day owing to a strong growth of the flow to and from Western Europe which added 116 daily flights (the flow to and from Germany alone generated 44 extra daily flights). Also, the flow to and from North Atlantic which grew 18% and the flow to and from the Russian Federation which was up 14%. Spain (excl. Canary Islands) ranked second with 145 flights per day owing to its flow to and from UK (+29 flights/day) and to and from Austria (+22 flights/day) along with its internal flow (+17 flights/day). France (bouncing back from industrial action in May 2018) was the third contributor with 120 extra daily flights. Austria was next with 65 extra daily flights thanks to strong growth to and from Southern Europe (Spain +22 flights/day, Italy +10 flights/day and France +8 flights/day). Poland was the fifth contributor and added 63 flights per day owing to its flow to and from Ukraine (+13 flights/day) and to and from Turkey (+10 flights/day). Ukraine was the sixth contributor and saw an increase of 11.5% (+55 flights/day) in its local traffic owing to its flow to and from Egypt (+19 flights/day) and to and from Poland (+13 flights/day). At the other end of the scale, Sweden saw 72 fewer flights per day, a decrease in domestic air passengers shifting to rail continued to impact the state’s internal flow which went down 10.3% (-44 flights/day). Iceland recorded 53 fewer flights per day owing to its flow to and from the United States which fell 40% (-21 flights/day) but also to its flows to and from Western Europe which saw 26 fewer flights/day partly due to the failure of WOW Air in March 2019. The charter segment had the fastest growth and was up 3.4%, followed by the traditional scheduled segment which increased by 2.9%. The low-cost segment was down 0.2%, a significant decrease that can be partly explained by the economic downturn in Turkey where major Turkish low-cost carriers domestic flights fell by 22.8%. The all-cargo and business aviation segments continued to decline and were down 5.8% and 3.9%, respectively. The airlines which added the most flights to the European network on a daily basis were Ryanair (+148 flights), Lufthansa (+66 flights), Jet2 (+44 flights), Wizz Air (+43 flights) and LOT (+32 flights).
The top five external partners in average daily flights on flows in both directions were the United States (1,140 flights, up 1.5%), the Russian Federation (1,066 flights, up 3.1%), Egypt (280 flights, up 18.4%), the United Arab Emirates (262 flights, down 14.4%) and China (204 flights, up 10.7%).

All of the top ten airports had positive traffic growth. Overall, the largest traffic increases in May 2019 were at Vienna, Berlin/Tegel, Stuttgart, Milano/Malpensa and Düsseldorf airports. The largest traffic decreases were at Stockholm/Arlanda, Copenhagen, Gran Canaria, Oslo/Gardermoen and Paris/Orly airports. The increase of traffic in Berlin/Tegel airport is due to new entrants as well as increased frequencies by existing airlines. In a similar pattern to Berlin/Tegel traffic changes in Vienna are also attributed to new entrants.
Six of the top ten aircraft operators flew more compared to May 2018. The operators with the highest traffic growth were Jet2.com, Loganair, easyjet Switzerland, Air Baltic and European Air Transport. easyJet, Emirates, Norwegian Air International, Royal Air Maroc and Condor recorded the highest traffic decreases. Flight restrictions for the Boeing 737 Max aircraft saw approximately 200-250 fewer flights/day by the type. Where required affected operators have leased in capacity to cover any shortfalls. easyJet Europe commenced use of their EJU operator code at the start of the IATA summer season, resulting in a shift of flights from the EZY code. Air Europa’s 12% increase in flights was attributed to new aircraft deliveries. Jet2 also saw new aircraft join their fleet. The decrease in flights by Emirates is attributed to the runway works in Dubai, reducing their flying program.

The Casablanca, Sevilla, Lisbon, Palma, Barcelona, Canarias and Madrid ACCs variation is due to increased traffic on the South/West axis. Traffic increase in French ACCs is due to the comparison with last year period of ATC industrial action. However, the highest relative traffic increases in May 2019 were in Dnipro, Skopje, L’viv, Zagreb and Ljubljana ACCs. Traffic increase in Ukrai
