FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany, October 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Frankfurt Airport posts new daily passenger record - Fraport's Group airports perform strongly 

FRA/gk-rap - In September 2017, some 6.2 million passengers traveled through Frankfurt Airport (FRA) - an increase of 5.4 percent on the previous year. This was the first time that FRA exceeded the six-million-passenger mark in a September month. With a total of 225,801 passengers served on September 29, 2017, a new daily passenger record was also reached.

Aircraft movements increased by 3.6 percent to 43,479 takeoffs and landings in September 2017, while accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) climbed 1.8 percent to just under 2.7 million metric tons - with both indicators posting new September records.

During the January-to-September 2017 period, Frankfurt Airport served nearly 49 million passengers - representing an increase of 4.6 percent year-on-year.  Cargo volumes grew by 4.7 percent to some 1.7 million metric tons in the first nine months of the year.  With 357,453 takeoffs and landings, aircraft movements increased slightly by 1.1 percent in the reporting period.  Accumulated MTOWs remained level on the previous year, reaching almost 22.6 million metric tons.

Across the Group, airports in Fraport's international portfolio performed positively in the first three quarters of 2017.  Ljubljana Airport (LJU) in Slovenia's capital city recorded traffic growth of 20.4 percent to some 1.3 million passengers (September 2017: up 18.9 percent to 180,380 passengers).  Lima Airport (LIM) in Peru welcomed almost 15.3 million passengers, an increase of 9.0 percent year-on-year (September 2017: up 10.9 percent to nearly 1.8 million passengers).  At Fraport's Twin Star airports in Varna (VAR) and Burgas (BOJ) on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, combined traffic increased by 6.4 percent to about 4.7 million passengers (September 2017: up 6.7 percent to 738,265 passengers).
