The two airports, Leipzig/Halle and Dresden International, recorded double-digit growth in passenger numbers during April

Overall, the airports registered 311,087 passengers, which represented an increase of 12.3 percent in comparison with the same month in the previous year

Leipzig, (lifePR) - The number of passengers at Leipzig/Halle Airport in April grew by 12.8 percent to a figure of 72,658 in comparison with the same month in 2016. 562,533 passengers passed through the airport during the first four months of the year. This represented an increase of 7.8 percent. Air freight volumes at Germany’s second-largest air cargo hub had risen to a figure of approx. 352,051 tonnes by April this year and grew by 4.6 percent in comparison with the same period in the previous year.

138,429 passengers passed through Dresden Airport in April, an increase of 11.6 percent. This marked a continuation of the double-digit growth recorded in March. The number of passengers from January until April rose to a figure of 490,185 and by 11.1 percent over the figure in 2016.

This level of growth at both airports is being sustained by positive developments in both scheduled services and tourist traffic. Nearly all the tourist flight destinations recorded an increase in demand.

For example, the number of passengers flying to Spain from Dresden Airport rose by more than 40 percent during the first four months of this year. The holiday destinations of Greece and Portugal also registered significant growth.

Passenger numbers from Leipzig/Halle Airport to Egypt rose by more than 50 percent in comparison with the period from January until April in 2016. The number of travellers making their way to Greece, Portugal, Morocco, Tunisia, Spain and Cyprus also grew markedly.

However, the number of people travelling to Turkey from both airports continued to remain below the figures for 2016.
