Airports Council International—Europe (ACI-EUROPE) reports that European airports, on average, have started the year 6.3% ahead of 2015, but warns that the proposed aviation tax in Norway could hurt the economy.
The average increase in passenger traffic was 6.9%
16 airports in EU Member states had double digit growth. “This was the strongest monthly rate in almost two years,” the airports association states.
