Fraport Traffic Figures - December and Full Yea...





FRANKFURT, Germany, January 15 /PRNewswire/ --

- More Passengers in Lima and Antalya - Frankfurt Slips 1.3 Percent

    Frankfurt Airport (FRA) served nearly 53.5 million passengers for the
entire year of 2008, down 1.3 percent compared to the previous year. Cargo
throughput (airfreight plus airmail) dropped by 2.7 percent to 2.1 million
metric tons and aircraft movements declined by 1.4 percent to almost 486,000
takeoffs and landings. Only accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) rose
by 0.5 percent to 28.4 million metric tons.



    Group-wide traffic grew in 2008 to 78.2 million passengers, mainly due to
Peru's Lima Airport (LIM) achieving 10.4 percent growth (to 8.3 million
passengers) and Turkey's Antalya Airport (AYT) reporting an 8.5 percent jump
(to about 9 million passengers) - here Fraport is meanwhile also managing the
domestic terminal.



    During the reporting month of December 2008, FRA was particularly
affected by the weakening global economy. With almost 3.8 million passengers,
FRA welcomed 5.3 percent fewer passengers year-on-year. Airfreight dropped by
25 percent to about 142,500 metric tons and aircraft movements declined by
5.2 percent to 36,255 takeoffs and landings. MTOWs also slipped by 4.8
percent to about 2.1 million metric tons.



    All of the other majority-owned airports of the Fraport Group recorded
positive traffic development in December 2008: Lima had about 700,000
passengers (up 8.8 percent), Antalya almost 332,500 passengers (up 6 percent)
and Frankfurt-Hahn nearly 265,400 (up 2.2 percent). In Bulgaria, Varna
Airport (VAR) registered 21,577 passengers (up 3.6 percent) and Burgas
Airport (BOJ) served 2,317 passengers (up 25 percent) year-on-year.
