How many flights ?
 
Hi. Not sure if this the right forum ;

Id like to know roughly how many flights a medium size airline like Virgin Atlantic flies in a typical year vs a big airline like BA. Nothing obvious on wiki.

Thx

Hi, this question might be better in Spotters Gallery. If you copy your text and then delete your post. Go the other forum and start again.

Figures for Heathrow are pretty easy to derive: last year VS operated just over 16,000 flights and BA around 240,000 (i.e. about 15x as many).

Adding non-LHR flights (LGW, MAN, LCY, etc) would bring the totals up a bit (more pro rata for VS), but the ratio will still be at least 10:1.

Does that help ?

Plenty of information on the web at least for UK & US carriers:

https://www.caa.co.uk/Data-and-analy...-reports-2017/
https://www.caa.co.uk/uploadedFiles/...vices_2017.pdf

BA flew 290,505 passenger sectors in 2017, Virgin (including a subsidiary that flies to the Carribean) 21,628.

You can get all flights for a day for individual airports from sites such as flightradar24. You can cut & paste into a spreadsheet & sort by airline, etc.

The US Bureau of Transport Statistics has lots of data. Sadly they are currently shut down thanks to Pres Trump.
