Compared to pre-pandemic levels, passenger numbers are still 9.4% lower, but Frankfurt Airport is moving in the right direction.

As a summary, Fraport, the operator said the following on the airport’s performance:

“Cargo traffic in Frankfurt (comprising airfreight and airmail) rebounded in November 2023, growing by 6.0 percent year-on-year to 174,258 metric tons.”

“At the same time, FRA’s flight volume also continued to increase, with aircraft movements up 8.5 percent year-on-year to 35,310 takeoffs and landings.”

“Accumulated maximum takeoff weights (or MTOWs) surged by 10.7 percent year-on-year to about 2.2 million metric tons.”

Across the operator itself, Fraport handled 9.9m passengers in November 2023, with this broken down into the following:

“At Slovenia’s Ljubljana Airport (LJU), traffic improved significantly in November 2023, rising by 37.3 percent year-on-year to 91,786 passengers.”

“In contrast, the two Brazilian airports of Fortaleza (FOR) and Porto Alegre (POA) registered a 12.5 percent overall decline year-on-year to around 1.0 million passengers.”

“Meanwhile, Lima Airport (LIM) in Peru saw passenger numbers climb by 9.9 percent year-on-year to around 1.9 million travelers.”

“Fraport’s 14 Greek regional airports welcomed a total of 784,981 passengers in the reporting month – 13.0 percent more than in November 2022.”

“In Bulgaria, combined traffic at the two coastal airports of Burgas (BOJ) and Varna (VAR) slightly decreased by 2.9 percent year-on-year to 83,347 passengers.”

“Continuing its growth trend, Antalya Airport (AYT) on the Turkish Riviera served some 1.5 million passengers in November 2023, up 3.9 percent year-on-year.”

All eyes will be on how Fraport and Frankfurt Airport ends the year, and to see what relevant growth percentages come with that moving forward.
