Association of European Airlines: “AEA’s airline-by-airline figures show the disparity between the impacts of airspace closures on individual airlines. Only four member airlines recorded a growth in April – all in southern and eastern Europe, while nine reported traffic losses in excess of 20%. Indications for May, based on weekly traffic figures, show an improved outlook. A further round of ash-induced disruptions in the early part of the month continued to impact the market, but the last three weeks of the month showed traffic increasing in the 6%-8% range,AEA statement.
