Fraport Traffic Figures – October 2015

FRA Achieves New October Monthly Record for Passenger Traffic and Accumulated Maximum Takeoff Weights – Group Airports Report Mainly Positive Results

Frankfurt Airport (FRA) welcomed 5.7 million passengers in the reporting month – growing by a noticeable 4.3 percent and setting a new October record. In comparison, the 2014 October statistics were influenced by Lufthansa’s two-day pilot strike. This was also reflected in October 2015 by the growth rates registered for aircraft movements and accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs). Aircraft movements advanced by 1.5 percent to 42,572 takeoffs and landings. MTOWs grew by 2.8 percent to set a new record of some 2.7 million metric tons. FRA’s cargo throughput (airfreight + airmail) fell by 1.5 percent to 185,222 metric tons.

Fraport AG’s international airport portfolio achieved mainly positive results for passenger traffic in October 2015. Ljubljana Airport (LJU) in Slovenia greeted 128,478 passengers, representing a significant 9.4 percent traffic surge compared to the same month last year. Serving 1.6 million passengers, Lima Airport (LIM) in the capital of Peru recorded strong growth of 11.7 percent. The Bulgarian Black Sea airports of Varna (VAR) and Burgas (BOJ) saw traffic rise by 10.5 percent to 86,290 passengers. Antalya Airport (AYT) on the Turkish Riviera experienced a slight 0.8 percent drop in traffic to 2.8 million passengers. St Petersburg’s Pulkovo Airport (LED) in Russia declined by 5.1 percent to 1.1 million passengers, due to the weak domestic economy. At Hanover Airport (HAJ) in northern Germany, traffic climbed by 1.8 percent to 581,355 passengers. Traffic figures at Xi’an Airport (XIY) in central China advanced by 8.7 percent to 2.9 million passengers.
