Dépèche transmise le 10 novembre 2010 par PRNewswire

FRANKFURT, November 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- In October 2010, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) welcomed more than five million passengers for the fourth month running. Some 5.02 million passengers used FRA during the reporting month, an 8.5 percent year-on-year increase. Thus, FRA's cumulative figures for January-to-October 2010 advanced by 4.4 percent to 45.1 million passengers year-on-year.

Airfreight at FRA hit a new historical record of 206,085 metric tons in October 2010, up 15.8 percent year-on-year. The previous top month was in May 2010 when FRA handled 204,332 metric tons. Total airfreight tonnage jumped by 25.7 percent during the first 10 months of 2010. Despite the growing trend toward larger planes at FRA, aircraft movements climbed by four percent to an astonishing 42,320 takeoffs and landings in October 2010. However, passenger traffic for January-to-October 2010 developed under-proportionately at 0.7 percent, due to unfavorable conditions at the start of the year. In contrast, cumulative maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) registered much stronger growth of 3.2 percent year-on-year in the first 10 months of 2010. In October 2010, MTOWs jumped by 6.8 percent.

Beyond its FRA home base, Fraport's leading majority-owned airports continued to achieve strong growth. Antalya (AYT) Airport on the Turkish Riviera registered a 22.7 percent gain in traffic, while Peru's Lima Airport (LIM) recorded a 24.6 percent surge in passengers. In contrast, Fraport's two airports on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast grew at differing rates. Passenger throughput at Burgas Airport (BOJ) grew by 6.2 percent and at Varna Airport (VAR) by 3.2 percent. However, these figures reflect the relatively small statistical base outside the summer operating season.

Overall, Fraport's majority-owned airports (including FRA) served a total of 8.5 million passengers in October 2010, up 13.9 percent year-on-year. Frankfurt Airport's Traffic Figures - October 2010
