News in brief: Cirium, ATG, and Jyrney

Global aviation analytics firm Cirium has released its second annual Airline Insights Review, which reveals the industry is in recovery and poised for a projected 47% growth in capacity in 2022. The review says this steep increase indicates capacity could return to 2015 levels by the end of next year. Although recovery was varied in 2021, global capacity is forecasted to return to capacity levels seen in 2006 by the end of the year.
