• "We are excited to see progress across the board in flight traffic this week. Business Aviation in the US has surpassed 2019 traffic for the fourth consecutive week. Commercial flight traffic in China and the US both hit new highs since the onset of the pandemic, China down only 3.5% from 2019 and the US down about 33% from 2019."
