Frankfurt records busiest month ever

FRANKFURT Airport handled 204,332 metric tons of airfreight in May, the busiest airfreight month in the airport’s history.

Fraport executive board chairman, Stefan Schulte, said: “The high growth rates in airfreight tonnage result especially from Asia’s dynamic economic activity and from airfreight’s special forte of making available at short notice the capacities required by industry and trade.”

Meanwhile, the Fraport’s five majority-owned airports as a whole handled 230,064 metric tons, a 14.2 per cent increase from the low of last year.
