European airports record growth in H1 2015, but only just

European airports just managed to drag cargo volumes into positive growth for the first half of the year thanks to improved performance in June.
Figures from the Airports Council International (ACI) Europe show that freight volumes for the first half of the year increased by 0.5% against a year earlier.
The organisation was not too optimistic for the rest of the year.
ACI Europe director general Olivier Jankovec said: "For freight, the situation in Russia as well as slower growth in emerging markets is likely to keep constraining traffic performance."
The increase came as a result of an improvement in June when cargo volumes increased by 3% year on year.
June was the third month of the year to record an increase in volumes compared with the prior year, and it was also the highest increase recorded so far in 2015.
