Munich Airport’s total 2021 airfreight volume was 22,000 metric tons higher than 2020.

This corresponds to an increase in freight volume of just under 15% and a 2021 throughput of 167,000 metric tons, stated the airport.

“Airfreight increased considerably in comparison with 2020, particularly due to a significant increase in ‘cargo-only’ traffic,” it added.

A total of roughly 153,000 take-offs and landings took place in 2021.

Passenger numbers rose by 1.4m, more than 12%, to a total of 12.5m passengers. However, passenger volume represents only slightly over a quarter of the airport’s results for 2019.

Like other airports across the world, Munich Airport’s cargo volumes were hit by the pandemic.
