Dépèche transmise le 23 juin 2009 par PRNewswire

LONDON, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- OAG () the world's leading aviation data business, has released its airline capacity outlook for the second half of 2009, to identify the projected trend in the global and regional supply of airline flights and seats.

The world's airlines will offer 3.67% fewer flights and 2.76% fewer seats than they did a year ago. The total number of flights (14,191,263) will be at the lowest level since the second half of 2005. The numbers reflect the airline industry's attempts to adjust to a weak economic climate, but capacity nevertheless remains almost 20% higher than the levels of the early 2000s.

The OAG analysis takes into account all future schedules filed by the airlines to date, to provide a comprehensive snapshot of planned airline activity for July to December 2009 with comparisons tracking back to 2001.

The OAG Capacity Outlook, with charts illustrating the trends, is available to download at .

OAG, part of UBM Aviation (), provides essential aviation workflow data and analytics sourced from its comprehensive proprietary airline schedules, fleet and MRO databases.
