How many planes fly each day?

Answer

Between 25,000 and 27,000 flights take off and land every day. These planes carry hundreds of thousands of people around the world on a regular basis.

The number of flights that take off and land every day changes on a regular basis. The average number of planes in the air over the course of a single day is 26,000. This is based on monthly and annual data regarding the number of scheduled commuter flights and insights regarding the number of people boarding these planes on the same scale. Modern planes are making longer journeys and carrying more passengers, so the volume of vehicles and ratio of passengers is likely to change.
