Summer peak capacity up just 1% at European airports in 2012

Despite the economic difficulties being experienced across much of Europe this Summer, the region’s airports and airlines have remained reasonably resilient according to anna.aero’s analysis of OAG schedule data for August. This shows that across 644 European airports scheduled seat capacity is up 1.2%, while aircraft movements are down 1.5%. Considering that since last summer two major airlines have closed down (Malév and Spanair) and a number of smaller regional carriers have also ceased operating (Air Finland, Cimber Sterling, Czech Connect Airlines, Skyways) a small increase in total seat capacity can be viewed as impressive.
