"Analyzing the data of the third quarter only – the company explains – the Tuscan Airport System, with 2.7 million passengers, it is down by 1.1%, deriving from the decrease in passenger traffic by 3% of Galilei in Pisa and by the 3% increase by Vespucci of Florence ". Florence and Pisa in the first nine months of 2019 were connected with 96 destinations, of which 11 national and 85 international (21 operated in both airports), served by 34 airlines (including 8 operating in both airports), 18 legacy and 16 low cost. Cargo traffic increased (+ 12.9%) with almost 9.6 thousand tons of cargo and mail transported as at 30 September 2019.The Galilei of Pisa
In the first nine months of the year traffic at the Pisa airport (4,255,589 passengers carried) recorded a 1.9% decrease compared to the same period of 2018 "mainly due – explains the company – to the trend of movements of the commercial flights (-1.8%). The increase in capacity on Munich (AirDolomiti / Lufthansa), Tirana (FlyErnest and Albawings) and the new flight on Casablanca (Air Arabia) have largely offset the reduction of Ryanair's operation, the suspension of the flight on St. Petersburg and the reduction of flights to Moscow (Pobeda Airlines) ".

The Vespucci of Florence
With 2,195,248 passengers transiting in the first nine months of 2019 passenger traffic increased by + 3.4% compared to the same period in 2018. "This result – the company continues – was achieved despite the first nine months of 2019 588 movements have been diverted / canceled for an estimated loss of around 60,000 passengers. Of these, 284 were hijacked / canceled due to adverse weather conditions as evidence of the inadequacy of the Florentine infrastructure. Net of the estimated passenger loss, traffic at the Florence airport would have seen a 6.2% increase in passenger traffic ". Among the relevant elements with respect to passenger traffic, the company recalls the increase (+ 4.2%) in international scheduled traffic. –
