Total business aircraft activity increased 5.3 percent in April from a year ago.

That’s according to Argus International’s TraqPak report for April 2017.

The report said gains were recorded among nearly every type of business aircraft — turboprops and light, midsize and large business jets — and operations — private, charter and fractional — except private light jet operations, which were flat compared with April 2016.

The report tracks business aircraft flights in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

Argus analysts estimate business aircraft activity will increase 3.9 percent year over year in May.
