How Many Times Do You Fly a Year?

I am curious to see how many times do you fly per year on average? This could be for person or business reasons.

I fly on average once a year but would love to do it more as I love flying. But more importantly, I have had a streak of 7 years (dating back to 2011) where I flew at least once every year since then.

Do you have any streak?

I am already looking forward to 2019 to keep my streak alive!

Typically once per year for personal and 3-4 for work. Although when I fly for work it's typically a 16 hour day and involves landing and taking off from 5-6 airports across Canada. It's a long, miserable day

1-2 times per year for each of: family, friends, ski, sand-sun-water, work.

1-2 times a year since 1998, except for year 2014 when I gave birth to my second son and 2016 because I didn't want to travel with a 2yr old.
The max in one year is 5, which was in 2008. My husband and I did France, Italy, Peru, Bolivia and Las Vegas
Next year London, UK

As for streak I'm not sure if I flew anywhere in 2011, however I am sure I've flown every year since then, and the three years prior. :)

I guess I'm different than the folks who have responded so far. I fly about 50-75 segments a year, mostly for business within Canada, but also some international and US mostly for personal.

Only for pleasure nowadays so down to 5 return trips, but can be any number of legs.
When I was working it was at least 25 times per year.

Until last year 20-25 Business and about 4-5 personal (vacation etc).
The worst was in 2015 when in 10 days I had to do a trip from Toronto to Halifax, Saint John, Montreal, Quebec, Winnipeg, Edmonton/Calgary, Vancouver then back to Toronto. Pretty much 2 flights a day.
Now work from home so just 4-5 personal.
