However, 2020 marked another strong year of growth for flyinginireland.com. The number of page views has gone up by 42.2%, number of sessions by 58.5% and number of unique visitors up by 54.8%. In total 638 articles were published by the editorial team and our contributors, up from 525 in 2019. December also marked the launch of a new Irish aviation podcast, Squawk7000 in partnership with flyinginireland.com.
