Global Flight Data Stable, Jet Fuel Price Starting to Creep into Industry Discussions
Minneapolis, MN | November 14, 2023 | By: Steve Sinos, Blue Lacy Advisors, LLC
Jet fuel prices are becoming a recognized concern in the industry despite stable activity.
Flight data is steady globally, though showing typical seasonal softness in Europe and Asia.
Cargo loads in Asia showed their first signs of stabilization, though referencing very low benchmarks.
Price volatility is apparent and increasingly discussed by airline leadership and industry spokesmen.
Flight Radar data shows global commercial flights steady in recent weeks, above 120k daily flights on average. While off the seasonal peak, the pace has consistently been stronger than in 2019. The real test is still to come, especially considering the ongoing volatility in Europe and raised risk awareness in the Middle East. Furthermore, airlines and industry spokesmen are keenly aware of rising costs, with specific references to stress caused by jet fuel prices. For now, it looks like the end of the year will show typical seasonal swings in demand, including cargo demand and associated seasonal pressures on diesel prices (and, by extension, jet fuel).
