Business Aviation Witnesses Robust and Steady Growth Across Worldwide Markets

2018 has been a good year for business aviation has it soars to new heights with a steady growth. Tailored service offering by private charter companies, the rise in empty leg flights, and flight support companies competing and offering discounts and new schemes, are few of the factors that have led to business aviation flourishing so far in 2018. iJET, helping hundreds of aircraft operators monthly to run their Business aviation flights smoothly and on-time brings you an in-depth analysis of the rise of business aviation and the dynamic aspects of its growth.

  • Upward graph evident in rising numbers
    Business Aviation operations going upwards as a handsome 4.5 percent rise was seen in the first half of 2018. April proves to be the strongest month with a 4 percent year-over-year increase.
  • Turboprops are the favourite
    Approximately one-third of the 1.5 million business aircraft flights flown in the first half of 2018 was Turboprops. As noted by AIN Online  “This was thanks in part to workhorses such as the Pilatus PC-12 turboprop single.”
  • Large-cabin aircraft top the list
    Large-cabin aircraft seems to be the most popular category with the biggest increase in operations which was 3.8 percent. This was followed by mid-cabins at 2.9 percent and small-cabin jets at 1.5 percent.
  • An optimist market
    The result of the recent Q2 2018 JETNET iQ Survey  showed that business aircraft owners and operators optimism for the business aviation industry is at its highest point in nearly 7 years.

New technology, sustainability in different fields, new airports coming, and the rise in air traffic are some of the key features fueling up this steady growth.
