Airline Update – Aegean Airlines

From 1st to 10rd August, Aegean Airlines operated a total of 1.372 flights. At the same time, the airline had to cancel three of its flights while operating with an average on-time performance of 80.3%.

Flight Volume

Looking at the graph, we can see a pattern shaping up. Thursdays and Sundays are the strongest days of the week, indicating that the Greece tourism sector is operating on a stable but still rather low level. For sure we will continue to monitor that trend.

Flight Volume

For Air France it is difficult to identify a real pattern yet. After a drop in flight volume on the 3rd August , the airline recovered and managed to reach a new high on the 7th (793 flights). From there the numbers decreased again meaning we have to keep an eye on any future developments. Currently, we expect a rise over the next couple of days.

With an average cancellation rate of 1.8%, Air France was not able to maintain the 0.5% achieved at the beginning of the month. The average on-time performance stayed at a very high level with 90.3%. Only on the 7th August Air France seamed to have a little problem with an OTP of 80.7%. Despite this low point, Air France continues to play in the top league of European airlines.

Punctuality & Cancellations

Even though, Alitalia was not able to continue their perfect run as they had to cancel one flight on the 10th August, they should still be happy with an average cancellation rate of 0.03%. Pair that with the excellent average OTP of 93,4% and we should be looking at a very satisfied operations team over in Rome.
