European air traffic is recovering very gradually, with no one knowing what the situation will look like in a few months or a few years. That said the French Minister of Transport Jean-Baptiste Djebbari in an interview with the French channel CNews. He reported on a current activity level of 15 to 20 percent from normal.

According to the minister, the travel rules within the European Union are “very harmonized”. He also reported that airport operator Aéroports de Paris currently has to do with 50 percent less work. This situation may well be permanent, he warned.

According to Djebbari, employment interventions will be necessary in anticipation of the recovery in the sector. In addition to Aéroports de Paris, thousands of jobs are also at risk with airline Air France and aircraft maker Airbus. For the latter, they anticipate a drop in activity of up to 60 percent from normal. According to the minister, the French government should help minimize job losses at Airbus.
