Frankfurt Airport has recorded record breaking passenger traffic in May with 5 million people passing through its doors, a 5.8% increase on last year.

 

Aircraft movements during this period rose by 3.6% to 43,207 and Frankfurt recorded a -7.9% in airfreight to 188,143 metric tons.

 

Much of this increase can be attributed to a recovery in traffic following the Icelandic ash cloud disruption, especially in airfreight, which saw a 39.7% spike in May 2010 as cargo from April was shipped.

 

Across the Fraport group of airports, Antalya Airport saw a 10.5% increase in passengers in May to 2.7 million, Lima’s traffic increased 15.5% to 971,800, Varna saw a reduction of -8.7% in traffic.

 

Burgas Airport experienced a 7.4% increase in traffic to 94,000, a result Fraport put down to a strong growth in hotel capacity in the southern coastal region served by Burgas.
