Figures from the airports authority Aena point out that the variety of personal jets that used Palma Son Sant Joan Airport in July and August was down 8.6% in contrast with the identical two months of final yr.
This lower is attributed to the change within the well being scenario, specifically the truth that travellers opted for personal planes as a way to keep away from contact with strangers on common flights. There isn’t a longer the identical degree of hysteria about Covid.
However though there was a fall within the variety of personal jets and air taxis touchdown and taking off, a extra vital comparability is with 2019. There have been 2,537 flights in July and August three years in the past. This yr there have been 4,464, a 76% improve.
Aena does not have figures for the variety of planes that used the Son Bonet aerodrome in Marratxi.
