174,628,241 passengers passed through Italian airports in 2017, with an increase of 6.2% compared to 2016; the main airport is confirmed Rome-Fiumicino with almost 41 millions and manages more than 23% of the total traffic, followed by Milan-Malpensa and Bergamo. The "Traffic Data 2017" of ENAC, Italian Civil Aviation Authority, are published on its website for the first time also in English.
Deputy Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Riccardo Nencini, highlighted: "Italy starts again. The strong increase in air traffic that we recorded in the last year is a demonstration of the good work done to make our infrastructures stronger and more competitive. A result that goes beyond the most optimistic expectations". "We are in line with other European countries" - he added. "It was not obvious. Our airports offer a quality and a service evidently appreciated by passengers. The future challenge and already put in place is to connect and integrate our infrastructural networks", concluded the deputy minister.
"In 2017, as happened in previous years -commented the general director of ENAC, Alessio Quaranta- further consolidate the growth data of air transport in Italy, with an increase of 6.2% on 2016, in line with the other countries of the European Union. The greater demand for movement must go step and step with the needs of the passengers, who are the engine of the system, and therefore with the quality of the services offered by both the airlines and the airports. It is a challenge that must be pursued and won so that national air transport continues to be a driving force for our economy and to compete at a high level in the international scenario".
In today's publication of ENAC, 41 commercial airports were analyzed. In this regard, to see the integral version of the entire document (112 pages), we refer to the attachment (pdf) to this AVIONEWS.
