  • Cargo traffic: -7.5%;
  • Aircraft movements: -2.1%. [more – original PR]

ACI EUROPE: “January figures point to worrying prospects for the months ahead. The apparent resilience in passenger traffic conceals a rather contrasted picture, with non-EU airports growing by 12.2% but EU growth at just 1.4%. Freight traffic clearly reflects continued weaknesses in the European economy while aircraft movements are set to further decline - in the wake of Spanair and Malev’s demise, to say nothing of renewed oil price pressure.” Olivier Jankovec, Director General.
