Cargo helps Frankfurt to strong growth

Cargo volume at Frankfurt Airport (airfreight + airmail, excluding transit) grew 5.1% to 1.6m tonnes between January to September 2017, contributing to “a significant 13.7% rise in group revenue to €2.23bn” said airport owner Fraport.
Much of the growth at the German hub was fuelled by a noticeable jump in passenger traffic, higher proceeds from retail business and security services and property sales.
Executive board chairman Stefan Schulte said:"After the first nine months of the year, we are absolutely on course to achieve our annual targets. The solid performance delivered by our group airports made a particularly important contribution to the rising result."
