  26. 26. Conclusions • Paris airports (BVA, CDG, ORY) account for only 25% of new French routes (39/156) in 2011 down from 30% in 2010. In 2012 (so far) Paris airports account for less than 20% of new French routes (27/167). • Capacity analysis indicates growth in Europe this summer but GDP forecasts suggest flat/declining economy. • Consistently high fuel prices (and worker relations?) will challenge airline profitability in 2012.26
