As China Southern Airlines begins July, its flight movements have spiked and increased by 42% compared to the same period last year.
Using data from RadarBox.com, we will see how the airline has performed so far through the busy Summer season.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
China Southern’s Numbers…
For July 4-11, China Southern Airlines operated 2,275 flights, based on a seven-day rolling average provided by the flight tracking company.
This is an increase of 42.37% compared to the same period last year and is 313 flights more than the same period in 2019, known as the pre-COVID era.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data from the flight tracking company based on the airline’s performance:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|June 6-13||1855 movements||826 movements||1971 movements||+138.62%|
|June 13-20||1853 movements||1204 movements||2059 movements||+71.01%|
|June 20-27||1846 movements||1356 movements||2097 movements||+54.65%|
|June 27-July 4||1952 movements||1506 movements||2231 movements||+48.14%|
What this data shows is that China Southern Airlines is comfortably exceeding pre-pandemic levels and is performing better than last year as well.
As per data from RadarBox as well, this makes China Southern Airlines the seventh most active airline in the world, behind the likes of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, Ryanair, and others.
With a Summer spike observed in July, it will be interesting to see how the rest of the Summer season will go for the carrier.
