Within the last week, I heard a reporter on cable news (I think it was CNN International) claim (no source) that an aborted landing occurs on average once in about 700 flights. No statement was made about whether this refers to scheduled commercial flights or whatever. I would guess it might be more common in general aviation and at certain airports or countries, but otherwise independent of aircraft size/type for major carriers.
