Fraport Traffic Figures - June and First Half 2016

FRANKFURT, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --





FRA passenger figures lag strong 2015 results - Cargo throughput on the rise - Restrained bookings continue to affect tourist traffic 

FRA/gk-rap - In June 2016, a total of 5.5 million passengers passed through Frankfurt Airport (FRA) - a drop of 4.1 percent compared to the strong June month of the previous year. Almost half a percentage point of this decline can be attributed to the approximately 230 weather and strike-related flight cancellations at FRA, affecting some 24,000 passengers in the reporting month. The traffic slowdown also had an impact on the overall number of aircraft movements (down by 2.7 percent to 41,153 takeoffs and landings), while maximum takeoff weights (MTOW) contracted by 0.9 percent to 2.6 million metric tons. In contrast, cargo volumes (airfreight + airmail) increased by 3.3 percent to 179,808 metric tons in June 2016.

In the first half of 2016, Fraport's home-base Frankfurt Airport welcomed some 28.7 million passengers, representing a slight 0.9 percent decline compared to the same period last year. The main reasons for this decline included: the disproportionate thinning-out of the flight schedule, the relatively high number of flight cancellations in the first half, and the reduction in travel bookings reflecting the overall geopolitical situation. Aircraft movements also decreased slightly by 1.0 percent to 227,187 takeoffs and landings in the January-to-June 2016 period. On the other hand, accumulated maximum takeoff weights expanded by 1.2 percent to 14.6 million metric tons. Likewise, cargo volumes (airfreight + airmail) also slightly improved in the first six months of 2016, rising by 0.7 percent year-on-year to just over 1 million metric tons.

In the first half of 2016, Fraport AG's international portfolio of airports reported partially diverging traffic results.  Slovenia's Ljubljana Airport (LJU) served 598,271 passengers from January to June 2016, representing a 4.5 percent decline year-on-year (in June 2016, down by 9.2 percent to 135,757 passengers).  In South America, Peru's Lima Airport (LIM) recorded double-digit growth of 11.0 percent to 8.9 million passengers in the first half (in June 2016, up by 13.0 percent to 1.5 million passengers).  The Twin Star airports of Varna (VAR) and Burgas (BOJ) on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast also achieved strong growth, with both gateways serving a total of 1.2 million passengers - a surge of 24.8 percent (in June 2016, up by 23.4 percent to 779,938 passengers).  Turkey's Antalya Airport (AYT) continued to experience a slowdown, with traffic dropping by 30.5 percent in the first six months of the year to 7.3 million passengers (in June 2016, down by 47.1 percent to 1.9 million passengers).  Traffic at St. Petersburg Airport (LED) in Russia was also characterized by a noticeable 6.5 percent slide to 5.7 million passengers (in June 2016, down by 7.6 percent to 1.4 million passengers).  In northern Germany, Hanover Airport (HAJ) also registered a slight 0.7 percent dip in traffic to 2.4 million passengers (in June 2016, down 2.9 percent to 521,676 passengers).  Traffic at Xi'an Airport (XIY) in China continued to advance strongly during the first six months of the year, rising by 11.3 percent to 17.5 million passengers (in June 2016, up by 10.8 percent to 2.9 million passengers).
