Fraport Traffic Figures – February 2018: Continuing Growth

PR NEWSWIRE

FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Frankfurt Airport records significant traffic growth for passengers and flights -Fraport's international portfolio achieves positive development 

Frankfurt Airport (FRA) served almost 4.4 million passengers in the February 2018 reporting month, an increase of 8.5 percent year-on-year.  Passenger traffic in the cumulative January-to-February 2018 period rose by 8.0 percent. February's passenger increase can be attributed mainly to intra-European routes which generated 13.2 percent growth.  Cargo throughput (airfreight and airmail) at FRA grew by 3.2 percent to 166,959 metric tons.

Aircraft movements climbed by 7.6 percent to 35,193 takeoffs and landings.  European traffic (up 10.5 percent) was also the main growth driver in this category. Accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) advanced by 5.5 percent to about 2.2 million metric tons.

Overall, Fraport's international airport portfolio recorded traffic growth in February 2018. Slovenia's Ljubljana Airport (LJU) received 99,213 passengers, a double-digit gain of 10.2 percent. The two Brazilian airports of Fortaleza (FOR) and Porto Alegre (POA) welcomed a combined total of about 1.1 million passengers - representing growth of 6.1 percent. The 14 Greek regional airports saw traffic slide by 8.8 percent to a combined total of 517,438 passengers. The primary contributing factor here was reduced flight operations at the high-traffic Thessaloniki Airport (SKG), required for runway construction works. As a result, SKG's passenger traffic dropped by 13.7 percent during the reporting period. In the meantime, the SKG runway project has been completed.

Peru's capital city gateway at Lima Airport (LIM) reported about 1.7 million passengers and growth of 9.6 percent in February 2018. Combined, Fraport Twin Star's airports at Varna (VAR) and Burgas (BOJ) on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast advanced by 62.2 percent to a total of 61,027 passengers. On the Turkish Riviera, Antalya Airport (AYT) achieved a 15.5 percent jump in traffic to 694,177 passengers. Traffic at Hanover Airport (HAJ) in northern Germany grew by 11.1 per cent to 317,579 passengers. In the reporting month, Russia's St. Petersburg Airport (LED) registered 953,908 passengers (up 6.3 percent) and China's Xi'an Airport (XIY) counted some 3.5 million passengers (up 8.9 percent).
