Airport operator Corporación América Airports’ passenger traffic numbers for February reflected a 25% decrease in passengers at its Italian airports due to the coronavirus outbreak, according to a market disclosure.

The company, a subsidiary of Argentina’s Corporación América, said that “COVID-19 emergency measures (taken by the authorities) generated a sharp decline in passenger traffic in the last days of February, reflecting an overall decline of approximately 25% in that specific period.”

In the month of February in Italy, the company saw a 0.9% increase in overall passenger traffic year-on-year due to an earlier increase at Florence’s airport offset by a drop at the Pisa airport.

The airport operator saw 6.4 million passengers move across its international portfolio of airports in February, a 0.4% decline from the 6.42 million passengers it handled in the same month in 2019.
