Seat kilometres used by UK airlines over the past 5 years


Figures from the CAA show a lot of data about all the UK airlines, including the number of passengers, number of seat kilometres available, number of seat kilomters flown, amount of cargo transported, percent of seat capacity used and so on. Figures show not only the airlines that have gone out of business since 2007, but the sharp rise of easyJet and other cheap airlines, the slight decline in passenger kilomtres of Virgin Atlantic, and the very small increase by British Airways between 2007 and 2011.
