Track the number of in-storage aircraft globally with new analysis from Cirium

Posted 25 March 2020 · Add Comment

Travel data and analytics expert, Cirium, has launched new analysis offering verified daily updates on the number of in-storage aircraft amid the coronavirus pandemic.

 

The spread of COVID-19 has caused the world’s airlines to temporarily ground significant portions (and in many cases the majority) of their fleets due to increasing travel restrictions and tightened borders.

 

Latest analysis from Cirium shows that the in-storage fleet as classified by Cirium has grown by 13.5% in the past 24 hours, with a total of 6,639 in-storage globally. This includes 2,542 Boeing aircraft, comprising 1,671 narrowbody aircraft and 871 widebody aircraft.

 

A breakdown of Boeing aircraft types currently in-storage can be found below:

·     45 717s 

·     6 727s

·     383 737 Max

·     1087 737s (-200 -300 -400 -500-600-700-800-900)

·     108 747s 

·     150 757s

·     154 767s 

·     376 777s 

·     233 787s 

 

Meanwhile, 2,608 Airbus aircraft are currently in-storage, including 1,837 narrowbody aircraft and 771 widebody aircraft.

 

A breakdown of Airbus aircraft types currently in-storage is as follows:

·       33 A220

·       11 A300

·       8 A310

·       23 A318s

·       338 A319s

·       948 A320

·       112 A320neos

·       325 A321s 

·       58 A321neos

·       467 A330s

·       18 A330neos

·       117 A340s

·       66 A350s

·       84 A380s

 

Cirium is also recording daily hours and cycles of the global fleet using data from the Cirium Core – the number one source for aviation data and analytics.

 

Taking the Boeing 777 Family as an example, this data shows a net reduction in the tracked active fleet of 250 aircraft, to below 700 aircraft in total, comparing Sunday March 22 with Sunday March 15, 2020.

 

The corresponding total number of hours and cycles flown by the global 777 fleet declined by nearly one third, to below 1,200 flight cycles and a little over 8,000 flight hours, between these two dates.

 

Looking at the Airbus A330 widebody twinjet fleet for Monday March 23, 2020, just over 300 aircraft operated nearly 600 flights and approaching 3,000 flight hours. These figures have declined by approximately 50% compared with a week earlier (Monday March 16, 2020). A year-on-year comparison with Monday March 25, 2019 also shows a decline of 70% in the number of active aircraft and a close to 80% reduction in daily hours and cycles.
