Frankfurt Airport Traffic Up for October Despite Strikes
Fraport AG, the owner and operator of Frankfurt Airport, announced results for October 2014.
The airport’s passenger traffic for the month increased 1.4% year-over-year to 5.5 million passengers. The rise occurred despite approximately 1,100 strike-related flight cancellations at the airport, which affected nearly 137,500 passengers.
The strikes did result in an overall decline in aircraft movements however, with a 1.5% drop in October 2014, for a total of 41,947 takeoffs and landings.
The airport also reported a year-over-year increase of 1.1% in cargo tonnage, with 188,062 metric tons of cargo passing through the airport in October.
