FRANKFURT, Germany, May 15, 2018

FRANKFURT, Germany, May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Frankfurt Airport reports continuous increase in passenger numbers and aircraft movements - Traffic also grows across Fraport's international Group airports 

FRA/gk-dh - In April 2018, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) welcomed some 5.7 million passengers - an increase of 5.8 percent. Without strike and weather-related flight cancellations, passenger numbers at FRA would have risen by 7.2 percent. During the January-to-April period, FRA achieved accumulated growth of 8.7 percent. European traffic (up 10.8 percent) continued to be the driver of passenger growth in April. Cargo throughput (airfreight + airmail) at FRA improved by 2.3 percent to 189,634 metric tons.

Aircraft movements climbed by 8.4 percent to 42,922 takeoffs and landings in April 2018. Again, European traffic was the primary growth driver (up 11.6 percent). Accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) expanded by 5.5 percent to some 2.6 million metric tons.

Across the Group, airports in Fraport's international portfolio all showed positive performance. Ljubljana Airport (LJU) in Slovenia's capital city served 157,837 passengers, representing an increase of 19.4 percent. Fraport's two Brazilian airports in Fortaleza (FOR) and Porto Alegre (POA) reported combined traffic growth of 2.8 percent to about 1.1 million passengers. Overall traffic at the 14 Greek regional airports surged by 10.6 percent to over 1.3 million passengers. Specifically, high-traffic Thessaloniki Airport (SKG) rebounded strongly, with the airport serving 521,822 passengers in April 2018 (up 10.1 percent). In March 2018, SKG still reported declining passenger numbers due to the runway closure in connection with renovation works. Lima Airport (LIM) in Peru posted 9.2 percent traffic growth to about 1.7 million passengers. At the Twin Star airports of Varna (VAR) and Burgas (BOJ) on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, passenger numbers soared by 59.2 percent to a total of 124,421 passengers. Traffic at Antalya Airport (AYT) in Turkey rose by 27.5 percent to around 1.9 million passengers. A total of 491,250 passengers used Hanover Airport (HAJ) in northern Germany, up 5.8 percent. Pulkovo Airport (LED) in St. Petersburg, Russia, saw traffic advance by 11.8 percent to some 1.3 million passengers. In China, Xi'an Airport (XIY) welcomed about 3.7 million passengers, representing an increase of 8.3 percent.
