2021 number of flights are rising back to 2019 levels
Flightradar24 suggests that the total number of flights tracked per day is increasing back up to 2019 levels, after we surpassed the slumped seen last year during the March confinement driven crash in demand for flight. Total flights are determined by Commercial flights + rest of business jet flights + private flights + gliders + most helicopter flights + most ambulance flights + government flights + some military flights + drones. In terms of commercial flights, the number remains below 2019 levels in absolute terms but pick up speed as we write this.
