Passenger numbers rise at Frankfurt Airport and across Fraport’s

Group airports worldwide.

With ongoing robust traffic growth in May 2018, Frankfurt Airport

welcomed some 6.1 million passengers and registered a 9.5 percent

increase compared to the previous year. Factors contributing to this

growth included the occurrence in May 2018 of several extended

holiday weekends, as well as school breaks in some German states. In

addition, increased capacity on FRA’s European routes spurred

passenger growth. During the January-to-May period, Frankfurt Airport

achieved accumulated passenger growth of 8.9 percent.

Cargo throughput (airfreight + airmail) dropped slightly by 1.1

percent to 184,555 metric tons in May 2018. Accumulated maximum

takeoff weights (MTOWs) expanded by 6.0 percent to some 2.8 million

metric tons. Aircraft movements climbed by 9.0 percent to 45,708
