Daily Airline Performance Analysis — Including 38 European & Middle East Airlines

With the Daily Performance Analysis, we take a quick look at airlines’ performance on a certain day of a month. IN that context, we analyze the flight volume, on-time performance, and cancellation rate of the carriers. Here’s the data of 38 European and Middle East airlines. The shown information reflects performance figures of 1st September 2021.

Flight Volume

Unsurprisingly, and similar to our latest analyses, Ryanair operated the most flights on the 1st of September. Moreover, the Irish low-cost carrier operates almost twice as many flights as Turkish Airlines on position two. Together with easyJet, Turkish and Ryanair are currently the only EMEA airlines that operate more than 1,000 daily flights. Except for Saudia and Qatar Airways, the majority of Middle East airlines can be found in the lower third of the list.
