It has emerged that Nairobi Airport is on the cusp of pre-pandemic recovery based on flight movements tracked by RadarBox.com.
The airport has been weaning in and out of this figure over the last few weeks, with this expected to become more consistent in the short-term.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Nairobi Airport is on the Cusp of Pre-Pandemic Recovery…
For this week, Nairobi Airport is expected to handle 225 movements, based on a seven-day rolling average provided by the flight tracking company.
This represents an increase of 9.22% compared to the same period last year, and is just 13 movements shy of achieving pre-pandemic numbers.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data based on the airport’s movement performance:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|September 19-26||241 movements||137 movements||237 movements||+72.99%|
|September 26-October 3||242 movements||164 movements||238 movements||+45.12%|
|October 3-10||226 movements||162 movements||242 movements||+49.38%|
|October 10-17||235 movements||190 movements||236 movements||+24.21%|
What we can see from the data is that Nairobi Airport is either getting very close to achieving pre-pandemic movement numbers, or they are temporarily exceeding it.
This ultimately means moving forward that in the short-term, this will expect to be achieved. As services become more consistent, then this recovery will become more consistent as well.
All eyes are on the airport to see what other services they could add to achieve this on a more consistent basis.
