How many flights are there each day?

Answer

On average, there are 93,000 daily flights originating from about 9,000 airports around the world. At any given time, there are between 8,000 and 13,000 planes in the air around the globe.

Despite the large number of flights in the air on a daily basis, the number of fatal crashes has been on the decline. One of the primary reasons for the decrease rests in advancements in technology. This includes equipment designed to detect turbulence or wind shear, major causes of crashes and mishaps. With this new technology, pilots are now able to avoid significant turbulence or wind shear all together, making the skies safer.
