Frankfurt Airport records strongest passenger month in history

Frankfurt Airport records strongest passenger month in history ( In July 2014, the Fraport AG global airport company once again registered passenger growth at its Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base. With almost 5.9 million passengers served in July 2014, Fraport recorded the busiest passenger month in FRA’s history. Despite weather-related cancellations during the reporting month, passenger traffic advanced by 2.3 percent compared to the same period last year. This increase can be attributed to the summer school holidays commencing in July in all of Germany’s federal states.

FRA’s cargo (airfreight and airmail) throughput grew modestly by 1.1 percent year-on-year to 181,459 metric tons. Aircraft movements decreased by 1.0 percent to 42,841 takeoffs and landings, impacted by the numerous weather-related flight cancellations.

Fraport AG’s international portfolio also registered traffic gains overall during July 2014. Peru’s Lima Airport (LIM) welcomed 1.4 million passengers, a rise of 3.8 percent year-on-year. On the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, Burgas (BOJ) and Varna (VAR) airports together served well over one million passengers in July 2014, up 1.1 percent. More than 4.2 million passengers used Antalya Airport (AYT) on the Turkish Riviera, representing a gain of 9.3 percent compared to the same month in 2013. Achieving double-digit growth of 13.5 percent, Pulkovo Airport (LED) in St. Petersburg, Russia, received about 1.8 million passengers in July 2014. Xi’an Airport (XIY) in central China saw passenger traffic climb by 8.8 percent to 2.7 million. In Germany, Hanover Airport (HAJ) had 527,835 passengers (down 5.8 percent).
