55% of fleets grounded in the beginning of April.
59% of fleets grounded at the end of April.
57% of fleets grounded at the beginning May.
55% of fleets grounded the end of May.

So, our latest analysis shows the trend we noticed weeks ago seems to be true. The number of grounded aircraft is going down and markets are slowly picking up. We analysed the fleets advanced data and we see that 55% of fleets are now grounded worldwide.

This trend also supports the trend we see in airline scheduled capacities. Both analyses show the market is jumping up from the bottom, but we are very far from a pace toward steep recovery.

The number of grounded aircraft does not fully represent the full picture as many airlines reduce utilisation to a minimum to avoid storing aircraft. We expect in further months to see utilisation drops for aircraft (ch-aviation fleets advanced data also includes utilisation data).

We see Asia continuing its leadership in recovery. From 52% grounded in the beginning of April, 50% in the end of April, and 48% in the beginning of May, it has now recovered to 45% of the fleet grounded in the region.

Europe has 100 fewer aircraft grounded compared to two weeks ago. In North America, airlines grounded 70 more aircraft than two weeks ago.

Active Total %, grounded
Africa 489 1,541 68%
Asia 5,956 10,852 45%
Europe 2,263 7,949 72%
North America 4,992 9,881 49%
Oceania 432 946 54%
South America 397 1,387 71%

The main driver of the growing number of active aircraft in Asia is the China market. We can now conclude that airlines in China never had the same high level of groundings as in other parts of the world. In February, we saw more than 29% of the fleet grounded by Chinese airlines, in the end of April this number stayed at 25%, and now we see only 19% of the fleet is still not active in China.

This week we also took ch-aviation ownership data to compare how large lessors are exposed differently to grounded aircraft. We looked at the portfolios of lessors that have more than 100 aircraft placed at the airlines and which are exposed most with grounded aircraft.

From the lessors with diverse portfolios we see Carlyle Aviation Partners has 83% of its fleets grounded, while another 10 leasing companies have 70% to 80% of its owned fleets on the ground. Unsurprisingly, three lessors with the lowest share of its fleets grounded are from Asia – CALC, ICBC Financial Leasing and Bocomm Leasing have 40% or fewer of their fleets grounded.

Looking at the absolute numbers, there are two lessors with more than 500 aircraft grounded – GECAS and AerCap. These two are also the largest lessors in the world by number of aircraft owned so it is also not surprising to see a high number of grounded aircraft attached to them.

We use ch-aviation fleets advanced data for this analysis. Our fleet team works to deliver the latest updates on airline commercial fleets globally.

We continue to monitor the scheduled capacity from airlines around the world. This week’s update continues with the trend we’ve seen over the last few weeks – the airline industry is growing the number of seats week by week, but the recovery still doesn’t have traction. There are slight increases based on government-lifted restrictions, but it looks like the road toward recovery may be very very slow.

The size of the capacity for the current week (May 18-24) is 33.9 million seats – that is 2.5 million more than previous week: May 11-17 had is 31.4 million seats. This is an increase of 7.9%. With such a tempo the industry should recover in 15-16 weeks, but we have doubts this speed will stay for the next weeks as we noticed some airlines in South America fixed their schedules, causing a larger increase.

Airlines removed more seats for for the month of June, but the month still has a lot of optimism for capacity growth. We will see in next few weeks if this will become true.

We continue to monitor the data from the ch-aviation capacities module.

The largest market, Asia, shows some recovery. We see an 8.8% increase in scheduled seats for the current week compared to the previous week. The total market drop in Asia still remains relatively small. We now see the market is even more than half of the seats what it used to be. The main reason for this continues to be the Chinese domestic market.

Airlines in North America finally found the bottom level of required capacity. Last week’s capacity went below 6 million seats and is now back to 6 million. But the airlines do not expect fast recovery, and June is not seing fast growth in seats offered like in other regions (even it is a bit fake, read last week’s blog post to find out why).

Europe saw the largest jump of offered seats for this week. The week before we saw 3.8 million seats offered, while this week jumped by 19% to 4.4 million seats. While this is still only 17% of the capacity what we consider to be “normal” at this time of the year in Europe, if the pace will stay the same, we can see very rapid recovery in Europe going to summer-peak and government limitations lifted.

We can’t comment a lot on capacity in South America as we saw a few airlines fix their schedules (what was supposed to be an error last week). Still, the capacity offered in South America remains at very low levels with no clear path to recovery. The optimism jumps in the month of June, but we can’t be sure if this is airlines still not being able to update their schedules.

Reductions of capacity continues in Africa. But what is usually a less busy continent compared to South America now is more than twice its size in terms of air connectivity. We believe airlines still haven’t made June schedules right at the current point and we will see further reductions going forward.

“We cut too much for May, too litte in June” – that’s the message you hear from network planning teams in Oceania’s airlines. We see slight increases in seats offered for the current week and next week, but the airlines in this part of the world are the most pessimistic about recovery in June. We may see May’s level in June in this market. There’s an explanation, however – as winter begins in the southern hemisphere, it’s very difficult to show an upward trend in the low season.

We will continue to monitor the situation on capacities and will post on our blog. Follow us here and follow our #chaviationcovid19updates on Linkedin.

At ch-aviation we are tracking new aircraft deliveries of the largest aircraft manufacturers: Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, COMAC, De Havilland, Embraer and Irkut.

An analysis of deliveries for the first four months of 2020 shows a significant impact of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic for new aircraft deliveries from manufacturers to airlines. In April, we saw just 15 aircraft delivered by all manufacturers while the average monthly delivery rate in 2019 was more than eight times higher.

We saw the first signs of aircraft deliveries being hit in February, but it was just the beginning, and now we see new deliveries have almost dried up.

December is the busiest month for manufacturers as they try to deliver as many aircraft as possible in the calendar year. The first two months are usually slower than year-end, but March to June usually is a very busy stretch both for manufacturers and airlines. With the COVID-19 pandemic we see a completely different trend this year – aircraft deliveries have being going down since February.

Boeing deliveries last spring were hit by the grounding of Boeing 737MAX aircraft, the most popular type in Boeing’s portfolio. Still, we can see this year is even worse.

Airbus in February still had a quite positive month with more deliveries than the year before (mainly due to more Airbus A220 deliveries). But when the global pandemic spread, new aircraft deliveries by the European manufacturer went downhill.

When we analysed new aircraft deliveries back in February, we saw new deliveries stop in China, Hong Kong and Macao. Now, our capacity analysis and aircraft grounded analysis shows some signs of recovery in these markets, but aircraft deliveries see no optimism yet.

The number of new deliveries in China, Hong Kong and Macao stopped when the region entered COVID-19. There were no new aircraft deliveries to airlines in China, Hong Kong and Macao in February, whereas 20 new aircraft were delivered on average per month in the same month in 2019. There was one delivery in March and two in April, but this is far from being a sign of recovery in aircraft deliveries. In March, we saw one Airbus A320NEO delivered to “Spring Airlines” and in April the new deliveries were locally manufactured Comac ARJ21 for “Chengdu Airlines” and another Airbus A320NEO for “Loong Air”.

Our hypothesis back in March was right – based on what we saw in China/Hong Kong/Macao, aircraft deliveries slowed down worldwide. Based on the grounded aircraft and capacity data in Asia, we should expect first to see aircraft deliveries being resumed in this part of the world and other continents should follow the path of the recovery.

We used ch-aviation fleets advanced for this analysis.

Our scheduled capacity review this week includes data for the first week of June. You will see, there is a huge jump in scheduled capacity for the period June 1-7 in most graphs. Do airlines believe the traffic will recover on June 1?

The answer is most likely “no.” We see a lot of uncertainty in future schedules. There are many airlines around the world that are grounded as of now, but they still have their pre-COVID-19 schedule on sale from Day X. The Day X varies airline by airline – in some cases this date is government imposed, in other cases this date is set by the airline. It is unbelievable that traffic will come back immediately in any market, so, most likely, we will see gradual increases in demand in upcoming months. June is the new month, so there are many airlines that have Day X set to June 1 (in most of the cases, this date, selected as the first day of the month, is merely symbolic).

We see that post-June schedules are not adjusted and in many cases these have not been updated since January or February, when COVID-19 began to spread. We believe the airline planning departments are able to adjust their schedules for the next weeks only and that the future is still too uncertain.

Nevertheless, the industry is not going down anymore and the current’s week capacity remains and similar level as few previous weeks.

We continue to monitor the data from the ch-aviation capacities module.

The size of the capacity for the current week (May 11-17) is 31.4 million seats.

We should remain optimistic from the fact that capacity for the current week is slightly higher than the last week (30.9 million). Over the last five weeks capacity varied from 30.9 million minimum to 32.9 million seats maximum. The weeks when airlines removed millions of seats every week from the schedules are now gone.

Asia, the largest region in terms of market size, sees a slight capacity growth for the second week in a row. We saw 18.9 million seats scheduled two weeks ago and the last week had 19.5 millinon seats and now the current week has 20 million seats scheduled. Still, this is less than half of the seats scheduled in the middle of March. We don’t believe the sharp capacity jump will stay for the first of June, but we should remain optimistic with the slow recovery in the region.

The airlines in North America are still searching for the bottom level of required capacity. The current week’s capacity went below 6 million seats. With the latest update we see airlines vanished 9 million seats from their capacity in the first week of June – we expect similar actions in other parts in the world too.

Similar to Asia, we see very slow recovery happening in Europe. The current week has the capacity of 3.8 million seats, while we saw 2.5 million seats scheduled three weeks ago. Yet this is only 13% of the market size we considered to be “normal” before COVID-19 hit the continent. Airlines have been busy working with the short-term schedule, so we also expect the capacity curve will be flattened toward June.

The capacity in South America went further down. Now the current’s week capacity is just 5.7% of the size what we considered to be “normal” a few months ago. Airlines started to reduce schedules for June and we also see a huge decrease for the first week of June, similar to North America.

Reductions of the capacity continues in Africa too. But what is usually a less busy continent compared to South America now is more than twice of the size in terms of air connectivity. We believe airlines still haven’t made June schedules right at the current point and we will see further reductions going forward.

In Oceania we see the capacity for May stayed almost flat. Still, the schedules seems not adjusted for the month of June, which shows capacity quickly jumping up. We believe there should be some rebound in the schedules looking to the other parts of the world, but the current schedules look too optimistic.

We will continue to monitor the situation on capacities and will post on our blog. Follow us here and follow our #chaviationcovid19updates on Linkedin.

Our latest analysis of active aircraft around the world shows another small sign of recovery in the airline industry.

We see that 57% of airline fleets globally remain grounded. This is 2% less than what we saw two weeks ago, when, on April 24, we wrote that 59% of airline fleets were grounded. As of now, ch-aviation fleets advanced data shows 18,496 aircraft are grounded for storage or maintenance. This means airlines moved 500 aircraft back into active status during last few weeks. Still, 57% is more than the 55% we saw in the beginning of April.

At least, there’s a trend of recovery instead of further groundings.

This grounded aircraft analysis is in line with the capacity analysis from last week, where we saw the scheduled supply of airline seats reaching the bottom as airlines prepared for recovery.

The number of aircraft grounded does not fully represent the full picture as many airlines reduce utilisation to a minimum to avoid storing aircraft. We expect in further months we will see utilisation drops for aircraft (ch-aviation fleets advanced data also includes utilisation data).

The latest update shows three regions have the highest percentage of grounded fleets: Africa, Europe and South America have more than 70% of total aircraft grounded.

At the same time, airlines in North America still continue to ground the aircraft, but the jump of percentage is not as big as we saw two weeks ago (grounded fleets went up from 39% to 47% in 14 days). Now we see airlines in North America have 49% of the fleets grounded.

Active Total %, grounded
Africa 429 1,547 72%
Asia 5,674 10,849 48%
Europe 2,162 7,953 73%
North America 5,061 9,827 49%
Oceania 398 948 58%
South America 372 1,400 73%

The main driver of the growing number of active aircraft in Asia is the China market. This country has a fast-paced, strong path toward recovery. We can now conclude that airlines in China never had the same high level of groundings as in other parts of the world. In February, we saw more than 29% of the fleet grounded by Chinese airlines, in the end of April this number stayed at 25%, and now we see only 1/5 of the fleet is still not active in China.

Active Total %, grounded
United States of America 4,481 8,107 45%
China 3,134 3,925 20%
Russian Federation 557 1,168 52%
Canada 370 1,029 64%
United Kingdom 222 899 75%
India 183 844 78%
Japan 496 720 31%
Germany 222 703 68%
Australia 280 676 59%
Indonesia 147 641 77%

The top 10 largest markets have significant gaps in the percentage of grounded fleets. China has 20% of the fleets grounded, while airlines in United Kingdom or India have more than 3/4 of the fleets grounded.

In North America we see the United States grounded 100 more aircraft than two weeks ago, while grounded aircraft in Canada grew by 20 units.

We use ch-aviation fleets advanced data for this analysis. Our fleet team works to deliver the latest updates on airline commercial fleets globally.

After eight weeks of constant capacity reductions, we’re seeing some signs this may be the bottom and that we are at the lowest point of current scheduled capacity levels. Airlines continue to remove capacity from the last weeks of May and further months, showing reduced optimism for a fast return of demand. But the size of capacity in the current week is not going down any more.

We continue to monitor the data from the ch-aviation capacities module.

The size of the capacity for the current week (May 4-10) is 30.9 million seats. Compared to the airlines’ published schedules in the middle of March, before COVID-19 spread worldwide, it is 29% of the size; airlines expected the global weekly demand will be 105 million seats in the middle of May.

The optimism comes from the fact that capacity for the current week has stayed at similar levels for last four weeks –32.9 million to 31.2 million to 32.6 million to 30.9 million. We do not see the cuts we saw when the crisis hit, which prompted airlines to remove tens of millions of seats every week.

Still, the pessimism spreads to further weeks, and airlines do not see a fast recovery.

In Asia, the scheduled capacity is not reduced any more and the scheduled number of seats for the current week is slightly bigger than week before. We saw 18.9 million seats scheduled for the last week and the current week has 19.5 million seats scheduled. Still, this is less than half of the seats scheduled in the middle of March, but the largest continent in terms of aviation market size shows the first signs of possible recovery.

The main source of the optimism in Asia is China’s domestic market.

We see the scheduled domestic capacity in China is more than 10 million seats for the current week (March 4-10) This is the first time since COVID-19 hit China that airlines scheduled more than 10 million seats for the domestic flights. Airlines stay even more optimistic for the upcoming weeks and see demand growth in the end of May and for the month of June.

Our grounded fleets analysis in the ch-aviaton fleets advanced module also shows China is the country with the smallest percentage of grounded aircraft — 25% of aircraft are now grounded in China, while the world‘s average is 58%.

Airlines in North America are still searching the bottom levels of demand with no optimism for any recovery in May. The current week has only 6 million seats scheduled for flights from North America – that’s only 22% of the market estimated two months ago. Airlines continue to update their schedules, so we expect further changes in this region.

Europe is another continent where we possibly see the bottom has been reached and airlines are turning to recovery. We see that a few airlines resumed part of their services in the beginning of May. Still, the road to the recovery will be slow and painful, but the capacity levels are not being reduced anymore. The current week has the capacity of 3.5 million seats, while we saw 2.5 million seats scheduled two weeks ago. Yet this is only 13% of the market size we considered to be “normal” before COVID-19 hit the continent.

The picture is similar in South America. The current week has 12% of the “normal” capacity scheduled, and the continent has the flattest curve for the remaining weeks of May. Still, the current week’s capacity is not going down anymore, so we could see this is the bottom of the scheduled capacity levels in the continent.

In Africa, airlines are still looking for the bottom and the situation remains dynamic. The market size in Africa is less than 1 million seats now and still continues to decline week after week.

The most pessimistic region remains Oceania, where airlines have almost zero expectations of any traffic recovery in the month of May. Also, with this week’s update, we see almost no change in airlines’ scheduled capacity. We understand the airlines have reached the bottom-peak level and are waiting for better times.

We will continue to monitor the situation on capacities and will post on our blog. Follow us here and follow our #chaviationcovid19updates on Linkedin.

With many passenger scheduled flights grounded due to reduced demand and government-imposed limitations worldwide, freight operators are seeking other ways to deliver cargo capacity. Some airlines are using their passenger aircraft with only belly capacity for cargo carriage.

We recommend following COVID-19 airline updates available for ch-aviation PRO subscribers for the latest updates. We have a special daily tracker called “Carriers deploy passenger aircraft as freighters.”

A more interesting move by some airlines is the quick conversion to additional cargo capacity by removing passenger seats from the cabin. A growing number of airlines around the world have begun reconfiguring their passenger aircraft as makeshift freighters, with cabin modification, to meet soaring demand for cargo capacity in the current COVID-19 global economic climate.

The ch-aviation fleets advanced module enables you to search for such aircraft.

For example, this Air Canada Boeing 777-300ER, registered as C-FIVX, had seats removed and is now used to carry more cargo than using just the belly capacity. We set this aircraft in cargo role.

ch-aviation fleets advanced subscribers are able to search for passenger aircraft in cargo role. You can use our “Aircraft Search” feature and select passenger aircraft type or model (or family) with setting “Cargo” as aircraft role search criteria.

For example, as of May 4, 2020, such search returns results of two active aircraft, one A320 from “Air Serbia” and 1 A319 from “FlyBosnia.”

We played a bit more and did a quick search that lasted less than one second to see what Boeing 777-300ERs are now in active service with seats removed for cargo roles:

Such query results with seven aircraft from “Air Canada” and “Ethiopian Airlines”:

Our data researchers are updating fleet data every day. More and more airlines are in talks with aircraft manufacturers about the conversion of its passenger aircraft to freighters.

Development in the industry are now very rapid, so stay tuned with the latest updates available for ch-aviation PRO subscribers.

Our latest analysis shows that 59% of the total airline fleets around the world are now grounded. Based on data from ch-aviation’s fleets advanced data, 19,068 aircraft are now parked for storage or maintenance globally.

Compared to a ch-aviation analysis done two weeks earlier, the number of grounded aircraft has increased from 55% to 59%, or by more than 1,000. Still, this does not fully reflect the situation in the industry as many airlines have reduced utilisation to a minimum to avoid storing aircraft.

The highest proportion of grounded aircraft is now in Europe, where airlines increased the number to 75%. Asia now has fewer aircraft grounded than two weeks earlier (50% vs 52%), but North America has increased its grounded fleet from 39% to 47%. Still, this is not reflected in the level of operations. Utilisation is not taken into consideration, and it makes Southwest Airlines the largest airline in the world now by active fleet numbers.

Active Total %, grounded
Africa 412 1,545 73%
Asia 5,386 10,850 50%
Europe 1,967 6,040 75%
North America 5,247 9,981 47%
Oceania 298 950 69%
South America 378 1,402 73%

The most popular narrow-body types are not grounded equally. We see 69% of Airbus A320-200s grounded, while B737-700 and A320-200N are relatively more used.

Active Total %, grounded
B737-800 1,966 4,841 59%
A320-200 1,268 4,144 69%
A321-200 558 1,611 65%
A319-100 443 1,217 64%
B737-700 586 987 41%
A320-200N 401 940 41%

Among the most popular widebodies, the A330 is the most-grounded aircraft, though the A380 has the highest proportion of grounded aircraft with just four units active and 234 grounded.

Active Total %, grounded
B777-300(ER) 335 808 59%
A330-300 194 868 72%
B787-9 231 536 57%
A330-200 97 490 80%
B787-8 97 365 73%
B767-300(ER) 92 347 73%

Important to mention that long-haul freighters are not impacted by the groundings. 181 B777-200Fs are flying (98% of total) and 165 of 767-300Fs are also active (95% of total). We see articles about passenger jets being used for belly freight capacity only, but we see this does not have any material impact on aircraft remaining active.

When we looked at aircraft groundings in the largest markets, we see quite significant gaps. 80% of all aircraft are grounded in India while in China now only 25% of total fleets are stored. This is a slight reduction compared to February, when we saw more than 29% of the fleet grounded by Chinese airlines.

Active Total %, grounded
United States of America 4,612 8,195 44%
China 2,934 3,920 25%
Russian Federation 496 1,170 58%
Canada 392 1,043 62%
United Kingdom 199 911 78%
India 172 842 80%

We use ch-aviation fleets advanced data for this analysis. Our fleet team works to deliver the latest updates on airline commercial fleets globally.

After the sixth week of monitoring global airline capacities, we see the scheduled total seats continuing to decline. Airlines are still grounding aircraft and the global capacity is being cut each week.

We analysed the data from the ch-aviation capacities module.

The world’s scheduled capacity is now smaller than one-third the size it was expected before COVID-19 crisis. We see the large drop of scheduled capacity for the first week of May as most airlines understand now that traffic will not return after the symbolic date of May 1.

But for the second week in a row, we do not see any more capacity cut in Asia for the month of May. The capacity may even be slightly increased in terms of seats scheduled to depart Asia.

We looked more what’s causing this optimism and the answer is clear: China‘s domestic market. Airlines further increased the number of seats scheduled in China and now in May airlines have more than 14 million domestic seats scheduled domestically.

After being the first country hit by COVID-19, it looks like China is now on a very strong, fast-paced road to the recovery.

Our grounded fleets analysis in the ch-aviaton fleets advanced module also shows China is the country with the smallest percentage of grounded aircraft — 25% of aircraft are now grounded in China, while the world‘s average is 58%.

The airlines in North America have no optimism for any recovery in May.

Airlines in Europe are still more optimistic with the traffic return during the second part of May.

Airlines in South America have even more optimism than European airlines with the possible traffic recovery in May. But all the plans are subject to change these days.

Africa is still a larger market than South America these days.

The most pessimistic region remains Oceania, where airlines have almost zero expectations of any traffic recovery in the month of May.

We will continue to monitor the situation on capacities and will post on our blog. Follow us here and follow our #chaviationcovid19updates on Linkedin.

This is the fifth week in a row we are following the capacity trends globally to understand the shifts in capacity during the COVID-19 crisis. Again, we see another round of cuts made by the airlines to match dropping demand and react to government limitations.

We analysed the data from the ch-aviation capacities module.

The picture may look the same as the last few weeks but we noticed a few differences in capacity trends in the different regions.

Globally, the current week of April 13-19 is a third of the size (in terms of capacity) what was planned before the crisis reached Europe in the middle of March. Airlines believe the 32.9 million seats scheduled to depart this week are more than enough to fly everyone is willing (or is allowed) to fly.

But the picture is not so pessimistic everywhere. For the first time since this crisis hit, we see airlines scheduling more seats in Asia than they did a week before for the month of May.

This is a very small step toward recovery, but we see in the current week that airlines were more optimistic about the demand in Asia than they were exactly seven days ago. There is a slight increase in scheduled capacity for the every week of May.

But in the second-largest region of North America, last week featured the largest cuts, when airlines removed a lot of seats from scheduled capacity for the month of May. Our quick look the the month of June still shows a possible sign of recovery, but we believe this is more impacted by the fact that airlines were not able still to adopt June schedules for estimated demand in the new reality.

The speed of reductions were reduced (again) in Europe, but still airlines are reducing supply in the Old Continent. More and more airlines are entering the party of disbelief that traffic may return in the month of May. Still, the airline schedules are filled with optimism for May and we could expect further capacity cuts for this period.

We could say this week airlines in South America stayed with the same capacity figures they estimated to have a week ago. Every week got a very small cut of seats, and airlines are the most optimistic on the traffic recovery in May.

Africa is the fifth-busiest continent in terms of air travel, but that’s not the case for the next few weeks. The trend is similar to the one in South America, but we see the total number of seats cut is smaller in Africa, so currently the skies above Africa are busier.

Last week we saw airlines in Oceania were pessimistic about traffic recovery, but the picture of the current week is even worse. Airlines cut the capacity so significantly, the current’s week capacity is only 10.6% of the capacity scheduled before COVID-19 pandemic was spread worldwide.

We see airlines are changing schedules really fast. Our “Route News” (available for ch-aviation schedules subscribers) are updated every week to inform you about the recent changes in route cancellations.

We will continue to monitor the situation on capacities and will post on our blog. Follow us here and follow our #chaviationcovid19updates on Linkedin.
