8 August, 2019

ACI Europe DG Oliver Jankovek said (08-Aug-2019) passenger growth "has certainly slowed" in 2019 compared to previous years, but still remains "quite resilient... given the range of economic, geopolitical and other industry specific challenges we are confronted with". He noted aircraft movement growth has "continually slowed" from 6.2% year-on-year in Dec-2018 to 1.6% in Jun-2019, showing "just how risk averse airlines have become in terms of capacity deployment and network development".
