In 2018 business aircraft flight activity increased just 0.9% after 4.8% and 8.1% growth in 2017 and 2016

In a classic glass half full or half empty analysis, TRAQPak’s 2018 Business Aviation Review noted that while private jet flights are set to exceed the three million mark in 2019 for the third straight year, growth last year was markedly slower. Business aircraft flight activity inched up nine-tenths of a percent, far below the 4.8% growth the industry saw in 2017 and 8.1% gains the previous year. On the negative side, the second half of the year saw declines after positive growth during the first six months.
