2010 first-half traffic results: first signs of an upturn, despite a slight overall volume decline

Skyguide managed and monitored 555 603 civil flights in its airspace in the first six months of 2010, some 1.0% fewer than in the same period last year. June brought clear signs of an upturn in traffic levels. The volumes handled showed differing developments in the various airspace sectors. As a result, despite the overall fall in traffic volumes, skyguide suffered a deterioration in its punctuality performance.
