European airlines and airports are butting heads again, in what Air Cargo News describes as a “bitter dispute” over airport charges. During the Airlines for Europe (A4E) event, CEOs of A4E member carriers reportedly presented study findings accusing European gateways of charging “too much” for slots. The report claims European airports were some 23% more costly than a list of the 100 top airports compiled by the European Commission in its 2015 Aviation Strategy. Airports Council International Europe punched back, saying the findings were “highly selective”, adding it was a “massive lie” to say that airports were connectivity disruptors. A good old fashioned industry fist fight.
