    At 10:00 am Eastern time on Sunday March 30, 2800 flights were in the air (both passenger and cargo); at the same time on March 1 that number had been 7800. The decline was 64.1% in March alone. Here is an illustration of the drop from FlightRadar:

    [ Note added 2020-04-10: ] This post from April 7 has a graphical tool that lets you compare air traffic in flight on March 7 with that on April 7. https://www.flightradar24.com/blog/then-and-now-visualizing-covid-19s-impact-on-air-traffic/
