Overflights leading a tentative recovery in Irish aviation?


Overflight traffic in Irish Aviation Authority airspace declined by just 2.5% in Dec-2009, admittedly on already depressed 2008 levels. The decline is the smallest year-on-year reduction in overflights seen by the IAA in more than 12 months, and a sign that traffic flows between Europe and North America are showing some tentative signs of recovery. The IAA provides Air Traffic Management services to approximately 90% of all traffic that transit between Europe and North America. [881 words]
