“We are currently facing unexpected dramatic conditions, and I know that we are all struggling to keep our industry alive. My first thoughts go to the staff which continue to operate our platform on a day to day basis, as well as to the teams that work for the success of aviation on the ground. It will take time before our industry will be able to recover properly. Together we are stronger and therefore I would like to invite you to meet in October to exchange experiences related to the current situation, to pave the road towards a recovery from this crisis and the long-term sustainable development of airports.”
André Schneider, CEO, Genève Aéroport
