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.
