European Airspace Closure Situation Getting Critical As Over 75% Of Flights Cancelled Saturday

Tyler Durden's picture

The latest update from EuroControl confirms that ongoing European air travel closures will likely have dramatic economic consequences. According to today's update from the flight control agency expects approximately 5,000 flights to take place today in European airspace. Normally, 22,000 are expected. (17k cancelled). Airspace restrictions have impacted most Northern and Central europe, including: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, most of France, most of Germany, Hungary, Ireland, northern Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine and the UK. EuroControl also notes that approximately 600 trans-Atlantic flights still take place each day, 300 in each direction. 73 flights arrived in Europe this morning. We are confident economists around the world are working furiously to estimate the GDP impact on the Eurozone as a result of this material outlier. First Easter, next Cesar Chavez day, now it is only logical that natural earth processes will be used to blame for the failings of Keynesianism.
