ACI Europe: EU airports see weak summer traffic

ACI Europe reported (02-Oct-2012) an "underwhelming summer season for the air transport sector" in Aug-2012 with passenger numbers at European airports increasing by just 2.2% year-on-year while overall freight traffic declined by 0.9% and aircraft movements fell 1.3%. The industry association added the image of a ‘two speed Europe’ in traffic terms continues, with the disparity particularly evident in Aug-2012. Passenger traffic growth at EU airports recorded a result of +0.3% while non-EU airport passenger traffic saw an average +10.5% increase in passengers. [more - original PR]
