Milan Malpensa Airport: lost 75% of air traffic
Added on Fri November 6th, 2020
The COVID-19 has not spared even one of the largest airports in Italy. Milan Malpensa airport is in a severe crisis. The crisis at Milan Malpensa airport consists in the loss of 3/4 of the air traffic. Employees will also be affected by the crisis, with a possible loss of jobs. A return to the pace pre- COVID-19 will take many years.
The loss of air traffic turns into an economic issue. As far as the employment condition linked to the Milan airports is concerned, it is also very complex and delicate. Before the arrival of the COVID-19, more than 30 thousand people worked between Milan Malpensa and Milan Linate. Today many of these workers are in redundancy fund.
