The largest German airport closed out the first six months of 2007 with new record volumes. Contrary to expectations, more passengers frequented Frankfurt Airport last month than a year ago. A total of 4,831,305 passengers were recorded at Frankfurt Airport in June which is 0.1 percent above the count in the previous record year 2006 and the highest passenger count for the month of June in the history of this airport.
Fraport AG welcomed 25,695,723 passengers at its prime location from January to the end of June 2007. Consequently, the passenger count at Frankfurt Airport was up 2.5 percent compared to the same period last year.
The European routes were the main growth generator until the end of May. In June intercontinental traffic took over this role. Especially connections to and from the Far East were in high demand.
The continuously booming low cost airport Frankfurt-Hahn served 369,859 passengers in June which is 5.6 percent more than in June 2006. During the first six months of 2007 a total of 1,936,315 passengers (+ 14.7 percent) were counted at this airport west of FRA.
