Pietro Modiano, Presidente of SEA, said:
“Ryanair today announced its most extensive winter schedule from Milan Malpensa and I thank the company and its CEO Michael O’Leary for your confidence in our airport that we will reciprocate in terms of efficiency and quality of services offered. This announcement confirms the positive trend that Malpensa airport had in 2016 with important results.
The traffic data are positive, with an increase of 3.1% of the airport system. Milan Malpensa, in particular, there has been an uninterrupted growth for over 19 consecutive months. December has the highest percentage increase, for passenger traffic, since the year of its opening: + 19%, and it is a significant goal. Because the comparison with the previous year does not include any movements from Malpensa to Linate determined by Lupi’s Decree or a comparison with the great EXPO 2015 period.
The increase in passenger traffic of Milan Malpensa, among other things, was significant not only in the historically most valuable component to the airport, that relating to the intercontinental traffic, but was determined to an important extent by the low cost traffic, two components that have proven that they can live together virtuously, as already happens in many large airports. “
