Asia Pacific airports were mixed, with Hainan Meilan International Airport and Shanghai Airport leading the declines, both closing down 1.9%. Shenzhen Airport eased 0.9%, despite reporting resilient traffic results in Jun-2009:

In Europe, Ferrovial, parent of BAA, also closed lower, down 3.8%, as Credit Suisse downgraded the group from 'outperform' to 'underperform', casting doubt on the group's ability to inject up to USD2.6 billion in fresh capital to ease BAA's debt load.
