ACI Europe revises coronavirus impact assessment, loss of more than 700m pax projected in Europe

Airports Council International Europe (ACI Europe) revised (23-Mar-2020 ) its coronavirus impact assessment with the following forecasts:

  • A loss of more than 700 million passengers from pre coronavirus at Europe's airports in 2020  projections (-28%);
  • EUR14 billion in lost revenues for Europe's airport operators;
  • Massive losses to "other service providers at airports will inevitably incur". 

The forecasts assume current coronavirus travel restrictions and flight bans are lifted "towards the end" of Apr-2020 and a gradual recovery in demand for air transport occurs. [more - original PR]
