At a recent EU aviation summit, airport industry group ACI Europe outlined the dire financial situation of the continent’s airports and called on EU transport ministers and the European Commission to ensure balanced and non-discriminatory relief for the entire air transportation ecosystem.

The organization highlighted that Europe’s airports have lost almost 900 million passengers so far this year, with passenger traffic almost entirely disappearing (down 98%) during the months of April and May. While airports lost all revenues during that period, they still sustained significant costs to accommodate emergency flights and ensure essential supplies via cargo flights.
