Buoyant Air Traffic Demand on the North Atlantic

Buoyant Air Traffic Demand on the North Atlantic

Buoyant demand for air traffic is continuing on the North Atlantic, with the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) recording a 4.1% increase in the volume of North Atlantic Communications flights between Europe and North America during May 2015 compared to the same month in 2014.

Eamonn Brennan, Chief Executive of the IAA said, “We handle 90% of all air traffic between Europe and North America transiting through Irish-controlled airspace. In May, we safely handled over 39,200 North Atlantic Communications flights, compared to 37,700 in May 2014.”
 
According to Eurocontrol, the ‘New York JFK / London Heathrow’ airport pair is the busiest airport pair transiting through Irish airspace and grew by 5.3% in May to an average of 40.3 daily flights. Focusing on the Ireland/USA market, Eurocontrol statistics also show a 6.8% increase in the volume of traffic arriving and departing at Irish airports.
 
“These traffic figures show a continued upward trend on the North Atlantic and that’s a very good yardstick of strengthening economic conditions within North America and Europe. The strength of the US Dollar against the Euro is stimulating demand from the USA. Dublin Airport is really growing these key North America markets – another good sign for the Irish tourism sector”, said Eamonn Brennan.
 
Year-to-date, Ireland’s en route traffic (flights which do not land in Ireland) are up 3.9%, whilst total flights in Irish airspace are up 4.0%. There was an average of 1,617 daily flights during the month of May, with the busiest day being 22nd May with 1,836 flights in Irish airspace. Furthermore, there was an average of 658 daily commercial flights at Irish State airports.
