Frankfurt see 2.4% dip in cargo volumes

Frankfurt airport’s cargo volume fell by 2.4% to 1.56m tonnes in the first nine months of 2015 versus prior year, mainly reflecting “the overall weak global trade environment and a slowdown in emerging economies”.
The German airport remains Europe’s largest cargo hub, handling 2.2m tonnes in 2014.
Group revenue grew markedly, rising by 9.4% to €1.96bn year-on-year in the January to September period, growth largely driven by strong passenger demand, as well as positive retail development.
Fraport’s executive board chairman, Stefan Schulte, said: "With the trend of the first half continuing in the third quarter, both our traffic and key financial figures have developed positively in the year to date.
“Consequently, we have revised our outlook upwards for the entire 2015 business year."
