Hamburg Airport: “We are facing the difficult conditions imposed by the political and economic environment with a great deal of commitment and energy. The Aviation Tax is damaging Germany’s aviation industry, and the weak European economy is putting
the brakes on development. But I am also seeing positive signals: the airlines are further expanding the variety in our route network. Variety means that passengers have a wide choice of routes, different airlines and fare and service concepts," Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO. Source: Company statement, 09-Apr-2013.
