The Swiss civil aviation statistic takes into consideration Switzerland's entire civil aviation. In addition to scheduled and charter flights, it also covers general aviation. This includes commercial and private business travel, sightseeing flights, transport flights, sport flights etc. In addition to data on aeroplanes, data are also shown for other aircraft as helicopters, motor gliders, gliders or airships.
In 2020, a year strongly marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, Swiss civil aviation recorded 1.1 million aircraft movements (take-offs and landings) and 16.9 million local and transfer passengers. This represents a decrease of 24% of movements and even of 71% of passengers compared to the previous year. While 84% of the flight movements were carried out by general aviation, which operates mainly with small aircraft, scheduled and charter traffic was clearly dominant in terms of passengers, with a share of 97% (corresponding to 16.5 million).
