Fraport Traffic Figures - February 2013: Passenger Figures Rise Slightly at Frankfurt Airport - Fraport's Majority-Owned Airports Continue to Grow

FRANKFURT, Germany, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Fraport AG welcomed about 3.6 million passengers at its Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base during the reporting month of February 2013 - representing a slight increase of 0.2  percent over the same month last year. The Fraport airport company's February traffic figures were partially impacted by opposing special and base effects. These included the effects of the GDF strike in February 2012, weather-related flight cancellations, the absence of a leap day versus last year, and the airlines' continuing consolidation of flights during the winter timetable. FRA's cargo traffic fell by three per cent in the reporting month to 156,258 metric tons. Aircraft movements declined by 2.1 percent to 33,656 takeoffs and landings.

Overall, Fraport's five majority-owned airports served about 5.4 million passengers, up 2.9 percent year-on-year. Peru's Lima Airport (LIM) continued its growth path, with nearly 1.2 million passengers served in February 2013.  Antalya Airport (AYT) in the Turkish Riviera received 627,411 million passengers. Bulgaria's Burgas (BOJ) and Varna (VAR) airports registered a total of 25,974 passengers.
