Industry Monitor 202 - April 2018

26 April 2018

In this month's issue of the Industry Monitor we focus on the 2.3% increase in European flights in March 2018 - a slowdown partly due to industrial action and adverse weather conditions throughout the month. The flight growth rate in the first quarter of 2018 was 3.4% - also just below the baseline forecast.

In other news, Boeing delivered 178 aircraft during the first quarter of 2018 and surpassed Airbus which recorded 120 aircraft deliveries. Oil prices surged to €57 per barrel, their strongest April in three years. Brent crude prices averaged €54 per barrel for the first quarter of 2018 compared with €52 per barrel in Q1 of 2017.
