According to WINGX Advance June Business Aviation Monitor there is some growth in key European markets, but heavy declines in East and South-East Europe.

Overall there were 80,945 business aviation departures in Europe during June 2015, up 1.8% on June 2014.

Growth during June was boosted by activity in Western Europe, where a six percent increase in movements was recorded. France and Germany saw the largest increases, with a combined increase of 37 percent.

The company also say they saw a surge in Bombardier Global Express and Challenger 300 activity during the month.

But despite the gains during the month, flight activity in 2015 is still 1.1% down on the 2014.

“Geographically evident that the gains came from leading EU markets, also Scandinavia and Baltics, in contrast to heavy declines in East and South-East Europe” said the company in a press release.
