Statistics and forecasts (STATFOR)

Statistics and forecasts are essential to EUROCONTROL, its members and stakeholders:

  • Statistics allow measurement and understanding of what is happening in the air traffic industry.
  • Quantitative forecasts allow to plan a response for future air traffic needs.

In the EUROCONTROL Agency these are produced by the Statistics and Forecast Service, STATFOR.

The objective of STATFOR is to provide statistics and forecasts on air traffic in Europe and to monitor and analyse the evolution of the Air Transport Industry.


The STATFOR service of statistics and forecasts is discussed and reviewed by the STATFOR User Group, a body of European forecasting and statistics experts that meets regularly. The terms of reference of the User Group include methodological and practical aspects of statistics and forecasting as well as an exchange of views and information on the current and possible future situation of air traffic, and on activities in National Administrations, International Organisations and elsewhere in the field of statistics and forecasting.
