"Winter storms brought a decline in US commercial flight traffic last week. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), one of the biggest and busiest airports in the US, saw major cancellations for the majority of the week while some other Texas airports including IAH, HOU, and AUS closed their airfields completely at the height of the storm.

Seems odd that only now China is increasing flights...since they have told the world that COVID was contained in March of 2020.

Will be interesting if the China numbers can hold / break the otherwise downward trend (30% spike is weird, but so had been the drop, but it seemed more trend like in my view), the chat showing US traffic on the lower side of ~18k vs. higher side (just trying to eyeball the end of 2020 to so far in 2021) makes me wonder if the seemingly slightly fewer flights may be due to airline not blocking seats as much; i.e. higher seat utilization. Europe graph shape seems almost identical to prior years, for the most part, just at different total levels; overall though seem even a bit more messy there this year vs. last…. Hope this could be a monthly type of data sharing.
