The question of the tax on departing passengers

The managing director of Gesac, Roberto Barbieri:

“Ryanair's numbers confirm the extraordinary connectivity of the Neapolitan airport and its ability to boost the local economy. After the pandemic shock, we painstakingly reconstructed and expanded the flight offer, bringing visitors to our Region well beyond the summer peak period, contributing to the seasonal adjustment of tourist flows.
