In year-on-year comparison, the number of passengers recorded by the airport manager is well below the levels of 2019, remaining at just over 895 million passengers in August, according to the data published on Friday.

International routes are particularly affected, with 4 million passengers in August, 80.7% less than in the same month in 2019.

“Borders and mobility with third countries still present restrictions,” explained Aena in her press release.
