European jet card flight provider GlobeAir recently published its April highlights.

The results countered the gloomy narratives about the charter market, particularly in Europe.

WingX data showed European fractional and charter flights down 10% during the first 28 days of April.

The Citation Mustang operator flew 716 segments last month, an 8% year-over-year increase.

The number of passengers on the four-seat VLJs increases by 4.6% to 892 clients.

During the month, it served 154 destinations, which is 2% more than in 2023.

The number of kilometers flow increased 10.7% year-over-year to 393,482.

Paris Le Bourget Airport moved up a spot to become the most popular destination for GlobeAir, displacing Nice.

Thanks to the trade show, Salone del Mobile Milano, Milan airports, Malpensa, and Linate were back in the Top 10 destinations.

Le Bourget and Geneva were the top city pairs for April.

“As the days grow longer, we’re excited to see where this rising trend in leisure and business travel will take us in May when Formula 1 is back in Europe and the UEFA Champions League final rounds take place,” said CEO Bernhard Fragner.

He called April a “solid month.”
