Traffic forecast for year-end 2019

From January to the end of February 2019, more than one million passengers used EuroAirport. This represents an increase of 9.5% compared to the same period last year. During the same period, the number of commercial flight movements (take offs and landings of scheduled and chartered flights) increased less than passenger numbers at 2.8%. Altogether, the number of flight movements (commercial and non-commercial traffic) increased by 5.7%.

For the 2019 year-end, EuroAirport forecasts passenger growth of around 4 per cent to more than 9 million. As in the past, the positive economic situation in the region around EuroAirport and strong market demand encourage airlines to continue extending their flights from EuroAirport and to launch new routes.
