“The passenger numbers in September show that there is also a revival in air traffic beyond the pure holiday traffic in summer. Business travel has also recovered. For October we expect stable traffic figures at roughly the level of the last few months. How sustainable and pronounced the recovery in demand will be in the winter months will, however, still depend on the further course of the pandemic, ”said Aletta von Massenbach, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH.
