The Economic Impact of Night Flying in the UK

August 6th, 2021

In early 2021, Airlines UK, working with a number of industry partners, commissioned York Aviation to undertake an assessment of the economic impact of night flying in the UK. The primary purpose of this report is to update, refresh and extend previous research undertaken in this area to provide a strong evidence base as to the economic benefits associated with night flying that will assist policy makers and other stakeholders in making informed judgements around future night flying policy.

The study focusses on providing a profile of and assessing the economic impact of night flying in the UK in 2019, before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This was a deliberate choice, as it provides the best basis for considering the role of night flying in the medium to long term.
