Fraport, the operator of Frankfurt am Main International Airport this week announced the handling of 5.8m passengers at the airport for the month of September.
This represents an increase of 18.2% compared to the same period last year, but is still 13.9% short of pre-pandemic levels.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Frankfurt am Main Handled 5.8m Passengers in September…
During the first nine months of the year, Frankfurt am Main International Airport has handled 44.5 million passengers thus far.
This is an increase of 23.9% compared to the same period last year, but again it’s also 17.8% short of pre-pandemic figures.
Cargo volume increased slightly by 1.3% to 163,687 metric tons in September, with aircraft movements climbing 16% to 39,653 takeoffs and landings.
On the rest of the airports handled by Fraport, this is what they had to say on that:
“Fraport’s global network of airports also reported traffic growth in September 2023. Slovenia’s Ljubljana Airport (LJU) served 140,455 passengers, an increase of 18.2 percent year-on-year.”
“Traffic at the Brazilian airports of Fortaleza (FOR) and Porto Alegre (POA) grew to a total of 1.0 million passengers, up 1.5 percent. Peru’s Lima Airport (LIM) welcomed around 1.8 million passengers in September (a 10.4 percent increase).”
“Meanwhile, traffic at Fraport’s 14 Greek regional airports rose to 5.1 million passengers overall (up 9.9 percent).”
“Combined traffic at the two Bulgarian coastal airports of Burgas (BOJ) and Varna (VAR) improved by 14.9 percent to 486,137 passengers.”
“Traffic at Antalya Airport (AYT) on the Turkish Riviera gained 10.2 percent to 4.9 million passengers.”
“Across the airports actively managed by Fraport, passenger numbers advanced by 12.1 percent year-on-year to a total of 19.3 million travelers in September 2023.”
Overall, things look to be heading in the right direction, not just for Frankfurt am Main, but for Fraport as a whole as well.
