Frankfurt and most of the Group airports record passenger growth

Frankfurt Airport (FRA) welcomed nearly 4.7 million passengers in
January 2019, thus starting the year with 2.3 percent traffic growth.
Without strike and weather-related flight cancellations, passenger
traffic at FRA would have grown by about 4.3 percent.
Aircraft movements climbed by 2.3 percent to 37,676 takeoffs and
landings in the reporting month.  Maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs)
rose by 1.5 percent to about 2.4 million metric tons.  Only cargo
(airfreight + airmail) posted a decline in January 2019, dropping by
4.3 percent to 163,332 metric tons.  Decisive factors affecting cargo
traffic included weaker global trade and the resulting dip in demand.

served 103,653 passengers, a rise of 3.3 percent.  The Brazilian
