While the London Olympics did not boost levels of private aviation traffic to the extent anticipated, data aggregated from Eurocontrol and Avinode shows that, compared with the same period last year, the region experienced a 19.2-percent increase in arrivals during the games period (July 26 to August 12). Flight activity increased most significantly in the days before the opening ceremonies, with 215 business jet arrivals recorded in the London area on July 27. However, Avinode said, June and July still experienced a decrease in average per-day traffic from the year-ago period.
