Passenger Traffic Increased 1,125% At Ireland Airports In H1, Says ACI

By Dave Simpson

Passenger traffic at airports in the EU market increased by 348.9% in the first half of this year to 635 million passengers from 140 million in the first half of 2020, with Ireland airports having the highest increase within the bloc, according to a statement published on Airports Council International's (ACI) Europe website.

Details

According to the statement published on ACI-Europe.org, passenger traffic at airports in Ireland increased by 1125% in the first half of 2022, followed within the bloc by Slovakia (+842.2%), the UK (+833%), Hungary (+784.8%) and Denmark (+611.8%) all experienced extraordinary increases.

Statement By ACI Europe Director General

The statement published on ACI-Europe.org included a statement from ACI Europe director general Olivier Jankovec that said, "These numbers speak for themselves. If COVID-19 caused an unprecedented collapse in passenger traffic for Europe's airports, the rebound we have experienced this spring - especially in the EU+ market - is equally extraordinary. The fact that volumes across the continent still remained ‑28.3% below pre-pandemic levels for the first half of the year should not eclipse the sheer and unprecedented unleashing of pent-up demand that has occurred since March."
