Forecast For The Following Weeks

As we look forward to having the stats for the following weeks, we will have an idea of how the forecast might turn out to be.

Due to the continued resumption of flight operations from different EU and Non-EU Airlines, Europe’s skies will see a consolidated growth trend with a greater increment expected from the beginning of July.

The increment is forecasted following the multiple announcements of resumptions of flight operations by many airlines.
