Fraport Traffic Figures - April 2020: Major Decline in Passenger Volumes Continues
Frankfurt Airport and the Group's airports worldwide report a substantial decrease in passenger traffic / Cargo volumes at FRA remain relatively steady / Frankfurt leads Europe in flight connections
A comparison of flight movements across Europe reveals that Frankfurt Airport has been the continent’s most important aviation hub during the coronavirus crisis, albeit at a lower level than usual. Based on current data from EUROCONTROL, Europe’s central organization for coordinating and planning air traffic control, it hosted considerably more flight movements―an average of 218 takeoffs and landings per day―than any other European airport. FRA has thus played a major role in continuing to supply the population of Germany and Europe with vital goods while ensuring a minimum of passenger flights.
Fraport’s Group airports worldwide have also been hit hard by the pandemic. Most of them are affected by severe travel restrictions (in Brazil, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia and China), while others have been completely shut down by the local authorities (Ljubljana Airport in Slovenia and Peru’s Lima Airport). The passenger volume plummeted by between 92.1 percent and 99.9 percent at most of the Group’s airports during the reporting month. The only exception was Xi’an Airport in China, which still boasted a significant passenger volume of about 1.4 million, 64.1 percent less than in April of 2019.
