Fraport Traffic Figures - November 2017: Positive Trend Continues

Fraport's FRA home-base and Group airports report traffic growth

Fraport

In November 2017, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) served more than five million passengers, achieving an increase of 21.1 percent year-on-year. However, November 2016 was characterized by a large number of strike-related flight cancellations.  Adjusting for this effect, FRA still recorded noticeable passenger growth of 11.8 percent, attributable to the significant expansion of airline flight offerings for the winter schedule 2017/18. 

FRA's cargo throughput (airfreight + airmail) increased by 4.9 percent year-on-year to 200,827 metric tons.  Accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) also climbed by 12.7 percent to about 2.5 million metric tons.  Aircraft movements rose by 16.6 percent to 39,124 takeoffs and landings.  Taking into account the number of strike-related flight cancellations in November 2016, aircraft movements in the reporting month saw an underlying increase of 8.2 percent.

Across the Group, Fraport's international portfolio of airports also performed well.  Slovenia's Ljubljana Airport (LJU) welcomed 121,520 passengers, a 22.6 percent jump year-on-year.  Peru's Lima Airport (LIM) posted a 9.5 percent traffic increase to about 1.7 million passengers.  The Fraport Twin Star airports of Varna (VAR) and Burgas (BOJ) on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast served a total of 73,220 passengers in November 2017.  Due to BOJ's closure for runway renovations in November and December 2016, a year-on-year comparison for Twin Star can not be provided. 

The 14 Greek regional airports overall grew slightly by 1.2 percent to 653,391 passengers in November 2017.  Antalya Airport (AYT) in Turkey served 959,182 passengers, advancing by 10.1 percent year-on-year. Germany's Hanover Airport (HAJ) closed the reporting month with a gain of 13.6 percent to 398,850 passengers.  Pulkovo Airport (LED) in St. Petersburg, Russia, reported a rise of 14.4 percent to about 1.1 million passengers.  China's Xi'an Airport (XIY) saw traffic increase by 14.2 percent to 3.4 million passengers.
