Eye on Europe

This chart shows Europe’s busiest airports* by departing seats scheduled last month (December 2021). London Heathrow remains Europe’s busiest airport, but others like Paris Orly have seen milder traffic declines. Athens (and Greece more generally) fared best among the continent’s largest markets, drawing more tourists seeking sun and sand. The U.K. had an especially rough December as the Omicron variant appeared. Germany showed similarly steep declines in airline capacity.

*Note: this list does not include Russia and Turkey. For Berlin, we used the city’s two former airports to calculate the change from two years ago. The new airport opened in 2020.
