Assyer, this year passenger traffic in the Italian airports will fall by -65%

The association calls for direct support airport companies

Assaeroporti announced that last month the system Italian airport registered 1.1 million passengers, with an increase of 885 thousand units compared to the previous month, and that the same trend has been observed for air movements doubled to around 28,400 in June, or 14,400 more than the previous month. The association emphasised that this is an important step forward, after the substantial zeroing recorded in the first period of the pandemic, but it doesn't make the picture less critical: compared to 2019 passenger traffic contracted by -99.3% April, -98.7% in May and -94.2% in June.

Assaeroporti pointed out that the prospects for stopovers Italians remain negative. Although the projections for July confirm the gradual recovery trend (1.2 million passengers in the first three weeks compared to June 2020), also due to the effect restarting of a number of national and European connections - has explained the association - estimates for 2020, in constant update, continue to be revised downwards. To date, predicts that the year may end with a volume of total traffic of around 67 million passengers, i.e. with a drop of -65% in 2019 and a loss of almost 130 million compared to the 200 million expected before the pandemic.

Assaeroporti pointed out that it is also moved forward the date by which it is expected to arrive at a full recovery of the air traffic: ACI Europe, the association of airport operators Assaeroporti recalled that the European Union should be able to take the necessary Passenger levels recorded in 2019 in Europe will be not before 2024. The slow recovery in sector is the result of the presence, even today, of the strong travel restrictions, especially with non-EU countries, as well as insufficient alignment, at European level, of European policies and operational measures to prevent contagion airports and planes. Circumstances that discourage passengers from embarking on new journeys, hampering the wait restart of the entire sector.

Assaeroporti pointed out that the financial situation of Italian airports, despite weak signs of growth air traffic, therefore, continues to be alarming. To that end, association has specified that it considers it essential direct support interventions, especially through set up a dedicated fund for managers and the introduction of a number of tax reliefs, including the reduction, especially for small airports, of the additional council on boarding rights, a tax that burdens all passengers departing from the national airports. These -- he Assaeroports - are just some of the key measures to support airport companies, both for the compensation of damage caused by the health emergency, both to fund huge planned investment plans. We need, more that never - concluded the association - of a development strategy air transport in our country that facilitates connectivity and promote the market by enhancing and protecting all supply chain.
