Frankfurt freight disappoints

Frankfurt’s airport operator Fraport’s airfreight and airmail tonnage dropped by 2.4 per cent year-on-year to around 500,000 tonnes in the first quarter of 2015. However, the group as a whole recorded “noticeable growth” in revenue, which rose 10.8 per cent to €575.9 million.  Contributing factors included growth in traffic and fees, consolidation of two new subsidiaries and currency effects. 
Frankfurt Airport recorded a 2.7 per cent rise in passenger figures to 12.5 million in the first three months of 2015, despite strike and weather-related flight cancellations.
Cargo and passenger traffic at Fraport-owned airports other than Frankfurt also largely improved, said the company.
