The article 'Commission presents defining criteria for future TEN-T', published on 7 February (Europolitics 4136), stated that the Commission plans to include in the future 'core' transport network all ports with traffic of more than 1/1,000 of total EU traffic as well as all airports with passenger traffic of more than 1/1,000 of the EU average and/or with freight traffic exceeding 2/1,000 of EU traffic.
