The resumption of European air travel

As planes fill the skies above Europe once again, FlowingData points to an excellent visualization of European air traffic from April 16 to April 21, produced by Ito World.  It really underscores the point I made about Europe’s centrality to air travel and the significance of the disruption and it makes for great eye candy too:

As noted at FlowingData, it’s not complete representation—There are gaps over France and Spain, the Atlantic, and Russia, but it’s an excellent visualization nonetheless. Be sure to watch it in full screen mode for the full effect.
