First Month with FRA's New Runway Northwest in Operation

Fraport AG welcomed about 4.3 million passengers at its Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base during the reporting month of November 2011. This represented an increase of 4.3 percent or 178,000 passengers, compared to the same month last year. Some 52.2 million passengers used FRA during the eleven-month January-to-November 2011 period - up 6.0 percent year-on-year. Frankfurt Airport set a new November record, surpassing the previous peak November of 2007 by approximately 92,000 passengers.

In November 2011 aircraft movements increased by 3.0 percent year-on-year to 40,111 takeoffs and landings. Similarly, accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) grew by 2.1 percent to 2.36 million metric tons.
