ACI EUROPE: “This has been a rather contrasted summer with geopolitical events and terrorism in particular shaping traffic performance at Europe’s airports. The shift in passenger demand towards leisure markets perceived as being safer has been significant. However, September has revealed some improvement for Turkish airports – while traffic prospects for Russian airports also seem to be getting better.” Olivier Jankovec, DG.
