Passenger volume climbs at Frankfurt and most of the Group airports

Frankfurt Airport (FRA) welcomed more than six million passengers in
April 2019, a gain of 5.1 percent year-on-year. This noticeable
increase can also be attributed to the Easter traffic, which occurred
completely in April 2019 due to the later Easter holidays this year
(compared to 2018). FRA posted a 3.3 percent increase in total
passenger during the first four months of 2019.

Aircraft movements in April 2019 climbed slightly by 1.8 percent to
43,683 takeoffs and landings. Accumulated maximum takeoff weights
(MTOWs) rose by 1.6 percent to about 2.7 million metric tons. In
contrast, cargo throughput (airfreight + airmail) fell by 6.0 percent
to 178,342 metric tons – due to weaker global trade and the later
occurrence of the Easter holidays.

Most of the Group airports in Fraport’s international portfolio
recorded growth in April 2019. Traffic at Slovenia’s Ljubljana
Airport (LJU) remained almost unchanged, increasing by 0.1 percent to
157,992 passengers. With combined traffic of about 1.2 million
passengers, Fraport’s Brazilian airports in Fortaleza (FOR) and Porto
Alegre (POA) saw traffic climb by 12.1 percent.

The 14 Greek regional airports achieved a 7.2 percent jump in traffic
to a total of 1.4 million passengers. The busiest airports included:
Thessaloniki (SKG) with 523,498 passengers (up 0.3 percent), Rhodes
(RHO) with 228,921 passengers (up 16.3 percent); and Chania (CHQ)
with 168,911 passengers (down 12.9 percent).

Serving 1.8 million passengers, Peru’s Lima Airport (LIM) advanced by
7.3 percent in the reporting month. Bulgaria’s Burgas (BOJ) and Varna
(VAR) airports reported a 14.6 percent drop in traffic to 106,205
passengers. At the gateway to the Turkish Riviera, Antalya Airport
(AYT) received 2.2 million passengers, representing growth of 16.0
percent. Russia’s Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg’s (LED) grew by
6.0 percent to about 1.4 million passengers. Traffic at Xi’an
Airport (XIY) in central China reached 3.8 million passengers, up 4.0
