FRANKFURT, Germany, November 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Aircraft movements reach new record high - Airports in Fraport's international portfolio also report dynamic growth  

The growth trend at Fraport AG's home base Frankfurt Airport (FRA) continues unabated. In October 2017, FRA served more than six million passengers, representing an increase of 6.4 percent year-on-year and a new passenger record for the month of October. European traffic was the main driver behind this growth.

FRA's cargo throughput (airfreight + airmail) slightly increased by 0.6 percent year-on-year to 195,230 metric tons. Accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) also climbed by 2.3 percent to about 2.7 million metric tons. Aircraft movements reached a new historic monthly record, rising by 4.4 percent to 43,788 takeoffs and landings in October 2017. The previous record of July 2015 was thus exceeded by some 80 aircraft movements.  

Across the Group, Fraport's international portfolio of airports also performed well in October 2017. Ljubljana Airport (LJU) in the capital city of Slovenia welcomed 153,641 passengers, a 16.3 percent jump year-on-year.

The Fraport Twin Star airports of Varna (VAR) and Burgas (BOJ) on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast saw combined traffic surge by 21.8 percent to 122,507 passengers.

Fraport's 14 Greek airports achieved overall traffic growth of 13.9 percent to some 2.4 million passengers in the reporting month. The busiest of the Greek airports included Kefalonia (EFL), Mykonos (JMK) and Kos (KGS), where traffic rose by 54.1 percent, 51.3 percent and 36.8 percent respectively.
