Fraport traffic figures – August 2022

Sep 13, 2022

Frankfurt Airport (FRA) welcomed some 5.2 million passengers in August 2022, achieving a new monthly passenger record since the start of the pandemic. Compared to August last year, FRA’s passenger traffic increased by 54.1 percent, supported by an ongoing high demand for holiday flights. Germany’s largest aviation hub thus maintained its rapid growth momentum from the last few months. When compared to pre-pandemic August 2019, passenger figures were still down by 24.9 percent in the reporting month.

Cargo volumes in Frankfurt continued to drop by 15.1 percent year-on-year in August 2022. Cargo was still largely affected by airspace restrictions related to the war in Ukraine and the extensive anti-Covid measures in China. In contrast, aircraft movements climbed by 24.6 percent year-on-year to 35,998 takeoffs and landings. Similarly, accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) expanded by 28.5 percent year-on-year to about 2.3 million metric tons.
