The report is the only air transport report which includes all types of civil aviation passenger flights: network, low cost, charter and others.

During July, passenger traffic at Europe’s airports grew by +6.7%, pointing to a strong peak summer season for air travel. At EU airports, the average passenger traffic growth was +6.4% with Slovenia, Ireland, Hungary, Romania and Luxembourg leading the region with double digit growth. Passenger traffic at Non-EU airports rebounded after several months of very weak growth, reporting a +7.6% increase – despite continued weakness in Russia.
