Update on European Air Traffic situation - 18.30 CET
EUROCONTROL expects approximately 22,500 flights to take place today in European airspace. On a normal Wednesday, we would expect 28,000. Thus over 80% of the total number of flights are expected to take place in Europe today.
At the current time, all European airspace is available above 20,000 feet.
Almost all of European airspace below 20,000 feet is available and air traffic services are being provided, although restrictions are still in force in very limited areas, including Finland airports and parts of northern Scotland.
Trans-Atlantic flights operations have gone back to normal, with 338 flights arriving in Europe today.
It is anticipated that almost 100% of the air traffic will take place in Europe tomorrow, Thursday 22 April.
