Cologne Airport CEO: 2019 traffic levels may only return in 2026 due to lower business travel

    Cologne/Bonn Airport CEO Johann Vanneste reported the airport will likely only see 2019 passenger traffic levels return by 2026 (Rheinische Post, 23-Sep-2020). He explained that this is partly due to lower business travel and the rise of video meetings and conferences as a result of COVID-19, which normally makes up around 30% of the airport’s traffic share.
