1 Issue N /02/11 Industry Monitor The EUROCONTROL bulletin on air transport trends EUROCONTROL statistics and forecasts 1 5.2% European flight growth in January, but underlying trend is circa 4% due to cancellations in January Traffic down 30% in Tunisia & 50% in Egypt in late February reflecting political crisis. Oil prices in February climb to over $110/barrel. Other Statistics and forecasts 2 Passenger airlines 2 Aircraft manufacturing 5 Cargo 6 Environment 6 Regulation 6 Fares 7 Oil 7 Tunisia and Egypt turmoil: impact on traffic 8 EUROCONTROL statistics and forecasts European flights were up by 5.2% on the same month last year, although this figure is distorted by the above average number of cancellations in January 2010 due to industrial action and bad weather. 3-4% monthly growth for the month of January is a better indication of the underlying trend. (see Figure 1). Based on preliminary data for delay from all causes, 38% of flights were delayed on departure in January, a big improvement on December 2010 and indeed both a 9 percentage point decrease on January 2010 and also the lowest percentage of flights delayed in January since 2002 (EUROCONTROL, February). (see Figure 2). The new medium-term forecast of flight movements is for 11.6 million IFR movements in the EUROCONTROL Statistical Reference Area (ESRA) in 2017, 22% more than in Traffic growth will bounce back in 2011 (above 4%), but with the underlying growth rate a little more than half of this, after allowing for the effects of the ash-cloud, weather and strikes. The average growth rate over the 7 years is 2.9% per year (EUROCONTROL, February). A special summary of the air traffic situation in Tunisia and Egypt over the past weeks is on the back page of this issue. Industry Monitor. Issue /02/11 Page 1 EUROCONTROL 2011

There are reports that some of the tourist traffic has been diverted to the Canaries, which since the middle of February has seen a jump in traffic growth to around 15%; growth to Turkey is also faster since late January, but it is not clear how much of this is due to the disruption in Egypt and Tunisia. It is further reported that British Airways will suspend its service between London Gatwick and Sharm El Sheikh from the start of May; on the other hand Egyptair hopes to restore its schedule towards the end of the Summer.
