In the past few weeks, Dallas Fort-Worth has exceeded an average of 2,000 daily flights, based on a seven-day rolling average from RadarBox.com.
The airport has been able to consistently hit this during the peak of the Summer season so far, which is positive news in the right direction to exceed pre-pandemic levels.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Dallas Fort-Worth Exceeds 2,000 Average Daily Flights…
For August 8-15, Dallas Fort-Worth handled 2,096 movements, which is an increase of 8.32% compared to the same period last year.
Such a figure is around 77 movements short of achieving pre-pandemic figures, which shows the airport is heading in the right direction for recovery.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data from the airport:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|July 11-18||2135 movements||1902 movements||2057 movements||+8.15%|
|July 18-25||2134 movements||1947 movements||2055 movements||+5.55%|
|July 25-August 1||2144 movements||1965 movements||2051 movements||+4.38%|
|August 1-8||2218 movements||1933 movements||2073 movements||+7.24%|
What we can see from the data is that Dallas Fort-Worth is making strong gains, and averaging 2,000 daily flights based on a seven-day rolling average is sufficient evidence of that.
The next priority is for the airport to start focusing on how they can close the gap to that of 2023’s numbers against 2019’s numbers.
Once they do that, then they can begin the process of growing flight movements further moving forward.
