Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, recently released the latest air passenger transport data for the EU.
You can read the full news release in PDF format here – here’s some of the highlights:
- In 2014, 879.4 million passengers travelled by air in the European Union (EU)
- That’s an increase of 4.4% compared with 2013 and 16.9% compared to 2009
- The largest increases in air passenger transport came from Greece, Luxembourg and Poland
- London Heathrow held it’s position as the EU’s busiest passenger airport in 2014. Over 73 million passengers used the airport.
The data makes very interesting reading, but the over-riding feeling here at FLYdocs is that old ways of working just aren’t sustainable in this environment. Forward-thinking organisations are moving to digital aircraft record management to enable scalability and benefit from operational efficiencies, and we’re leading the change.
