EUROCONTROL releases medium-term forecast (2011-2017)

EUROCONTROL announced (24-Oct-2011) the release of its medium-term forecast of flights (2011–2017), which replaces the medium-term forecast report published in Feb-2011 and the short-term forecast published in May this year. EUROCONTROL stated that its medium-term flight forecast has been "slightly" increased, but short-term (2012) growth is expected to be slower due to weaker than forecast economic growth.
