These are the most widely used aircrafts:
To categorize the models of the most commonly used aircraft globally, we first make a distinction between short/ medium haul flights and long haul flights. With this, we will be able to know the differences in the model of aircraft used based on the travelling distance they are most suited for.
Short & Medium haul flights
If you are flying to a country within Asia or in the Pacific, chances are that you will do so in an Airbus A320 or a Boeing 737-800. Through our data, we observe that these aircraft models are often used for shorter flights. The Airbus A320 also has four variants: A318, A319, A320 and A321. Interestingly, the smaller the number of the aircraft model, the smaller the size of the aircraft.
Long haul flights
If you are flying to a destination that is further away, chances are that you will fly in an Airbus A380, an Airbus A330-300 or a Boeing 777.
