This week I wrote a lot about air travel. Let’s conclude this study with an interesting statistics on how people spend time while on the plane.
So, 3% of time spent on shopping doesn’t look too impressive at first. This blog from Boeing suggests that the average flight length today is 6 hours [link]. This leaves the passengers about 11 mins for shopping on average. Doesn’t look like a lot (when compared to 6 hours).
But, apparently, people shop much faster when on a plane: “duty-free on airlines is a US$3 billion business worldwide, and still growing” [link].
