ACI EUROPE: “These figures speak from themselves. More than 85% of European airports are suffering falls in traffic so far this year. Traffic recovery is not yet in sight, although we may have hit the bottom…However, there is still a great deal of uncertainty. We don’t know yet when the much-talked about ‘green shoots in the economy’ will result in a return to growth in aviation and we remain heavily exposed to potential risks relating to H1N1 and future oil price fluctuations,” Olivier Jankovec, Director General.
