ACI-Europe reports 4% fall in Jul-2009 pax numbers

ACI-Europe reports (08-Sep-09) the following traffic highlights in Jul-2009:

  • Passenger numbers: n/a, -4.3% year-on-year;
    • Group 1: n/a, -3.6%;
    • Group 2: n/a, -4.8%;
    • Group 3: n/a, -5.1%;
    • Group 4:  n/a, -4.1%;
  • Cargo volume: n/a, -13.4%;
  • Aircraft movements: n/a, -7.3%. [more]

ACI EUROPE: “Things aren’t so much improving as getting less worse. The vast majority of European airports continue to lose traffic, albeit at a slower pace than earlier in the year. The real ray of light comes from the trend in freight traffic, which is substantially above the -20% barrier for the first time this year. However, this cannot yet be called a recovery,” Olivier Jankovec, Director General. Source: ACI Europe, 08-Sep-2009.
