More winter passengers handled by France's Alpine airports

Jun 19, 2008 / alpMedia
Passenger volumes at the airports in Grenoble-Isère/F and Chambéry-Savoie/F increased by 7% and 20% respectively in the 2007/2008 winter season. In the last two years, Grenoble-Isère has had the highest rates of growth in passenger totals of all French airports.
The two Alpine airports are particularly popular with winter visitors from the UK, with Scandinavia coming second. Last year's new services from the Netherlands, Sweden and Poland also proved very successful. For the upcoming winter season, the airport authorities are anticipating a further increase in passenger movements. This development is giving cause for concern with regard to its ecological footprint, all the more so as many visitors only stay for a long weekend.
