Frankfurt Airport, pax traffic dropped by 5% in August 2016

Frankfurt Airport (FRA) announced that almost 6 million passengers passed through the airport in August 2016, a 5% decline compared to the same month in 2015.

The airport said that the restrained bookings by holidaymakers again resulted in a decline in passenger traffic particularly to tourist destinations in Egypt, Tunisia, and Turkey.

Intercontinental traffic at FRA also slowed reflecting concerns of holidaymakers, particularly from the Far East, regarding the overall security situation in Europe.

Correspondingly, the number of aircraft movements at FRA declined by 2.3% to 41,803 takeoffs and landings. Accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) shrank by 1.8% to some 2.7 million metric tons, whereas the average MTOW per landing rose to 127.9 metric tons – thus marking a new August record. Cargo throughput (airfreight + airmail) remained almost stable at 171,871 metric tons in the reporting month (down 0.1%).

IMO lots of excuses by Fraport. Terror, fears etc don't explain why other airports still grow.

IMO, Frankfurt airport is losing its position as Germany's international hub as Munich, Dusseldorf and also Cologne catch up. Also Emirates and Etihad provide access to the Asian market from other airports now.

Second, Frankfurt airport is a nightmare to transfer. Why transfer in Frankfurt if you get similar flights over Munich or Amsterdam?

Third, Frankfurt itself is not a desirable tourist destination like Amsterdam, London or Paris.

Canada Day (July 1st) to Labour Day (September 5th) represents roughly 2 months of travel. Almost 4.8 million passengers each month is very good. That might place Pearson in the top 20 for both July and August.

Record Breaking Summer at Toronto Pearson Signals New Era as Key North American International Airport

Nearly 9.6 million passengers have travelled through Toronto Pearson since Canada Day

TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2016 /CNW/ - Toronto Pearson has completed a record-breaking summer travel season with nearly 9.6 million passengers travelling through the airport between Canada Day and Labour Day. The peak days of August 12 and August 19 saw almost 150,000 passengers per day.

The increase in passenger traffic reflects Toronto Pearson's role as one of the top 40 international airports in the world, connecting people to from around the world. In the first half of 2016, passenger numbers increased by 5.9 per cent, compared to the first half of 2015. Of this, nearly 30 per cent were passengers connecting through Toronto Pearson to other destinations.

Connecting passenger traffic has become an important component of the airport's overall traffic. Toronto Pearson has become the fourth-busiest port of entry into the United States, among North American airports, with 5.6 million passengers entering the U.S. annually.

Hi guys,
sorry for being late, but some airports really took time to release their statistics (as usual NYC, Charlotte and now Toronto!)

The most exciting month of the year is here, at least in case of statistics and new records achieved. Here we go!

15 out of top 30 airports broke new monthly record, respectively 24 out of top 50, which is demonstrates strong growth across most of the countries (marked in italic and underlined)

LAX surpassed ORD by its monthly record and can be proud to be the second busiest US airport after ATL,
AMS become second busiest in Europe this month, right after LHR and achieved 6 mil passengers in a single month for the first time,
ICN experienced another month of tremendous growth due to MERS outbreak occurring last year,
DEL is among the fastest growing airport worldwide, registering 23.3% growth, mostly thanks to domestic expansion,
KUL finally crossed 50 mil passengers landmark on 12-month rolling basis, becoming 25th airport in the history to do so,
MEX surpassed 40 mil passengers served in the last 12 months, totaling 43 airports that currently serves more than 40 mil passengers annually,
US airports CLT, PHX, DFW and IAH experienced decline in total numbers, compare to LAX, DEN, SFO, SEA, MCO which continues with the trend of the growth,
DXB and DOH witnessed high growth thanks to Ramadan ending,
European busiest airports CDG and FRA continues to struggle with growth, along with IST, they are losing passengers since April,
PVG and AMS crossed 6 mil passenger milestone,
SFO, CAN and ICN crossed 5 mil passenger milestone,
MUC and MEX crossed 4 mil passenger milestone







As we can see, LHR is losing its position and most probably would end up 7th world busiest airports. That would mean the worst position for LHR ever. HKG is only 5 mil passengers behind just FYI.

Great update as always, bubbalo!

I think CDG will drop to 11th by the end of the year, behind DFW and PVG, given the latter's impressive growth. If the trend continues, perhaps AMS will become Europe's second busiest airport by next year.

Regarding Latin American airports, MEX will probably remain in this list as the only region's representative by the end of the year, given the loss of passengers experienced by GRU since last year. This trend will possibly continue some more months. Let's see if MEX itself can stay in this list in the next few years. Congestion has led to ban on new flights at MEX at certain times, despite the interest shown by several airlines to enter this growing market. This bottleneck will continue until the new airport opens by 2020. On the other hand, Chinese, Indian and other airports will probably keep growing at faster paces.

Great update. On a sidenote, AMS had 6,41 mio passengers in August 2016 and broke its monthly record again.

and overtook Hong Kong! It has been nine years that HKG is notably busier than AMS on annual basis, and that won't disappear but it is noteworthy that after some years of total (=also consistently per month) domination AMS climbs above HKG. Next step: a month at spot #7 above Haneda or #8 above CDG?

AMS will become Europes #2 Airport next year as IST and CDG face headwinds to stunt growth. But either could yet bounce back to overtake it again by 2019.

Wow, Seattle looks poised to take over quite a few U.S. airports ahead of it. Looks like it will hit #8 from current #11 in the country next year. Charlotte, Miami and Las Vegas are in their sights.

Because of the fast growth, AMS gets a new temporary terminal. It will be ready in May 2017 and will be integrated in the airport concept (everything under one roof).

hey guys,
isaidso wanted to know what are the busiest international airports in the world, however it is very difficult to compile that kind of table. At least I can present you the busiest international airports in USA and some graphical illustrations

The first graph shows share of each airport on total international passengers, e.i. JFK handled 16,15% of all international passengers passing through all 22 airports in 2015


Thi ones shows percentage of international passengers passing through the airport on monthly basis, e.i. In June 2016 almost 55% of all passengers at JFK were international,


The next two graph shows total amount of international passengers on 12-month rolling basis



Fifth graph shows 22 airports and its total international and domestic passengers in 2015


And the last one shows % of international and domestic passengers in 2015

Remember to add intra EU and Ex EU to = International.

Hi guys,

I have been little quiet lately so I completely missed update on one of the most interesting month - August. And since I am very late, here is also update of September!

Unfortunately Qatar did not issue any statistics from July, so for DOH numbers are estimation.

Anyway here we go!
as July revealed many records, August continued with similar trend. There were 20 airports reached new record in monthly statistics (4 less than in July).
KMG registered more than 4 million handled passengers for the first time and became 44th airport to server more than 40 million passengers (lucky number 4 lol)
Several airports grew double digits including ICN, DEL, KMG, BOM, DOH and XIY, notably DEN, which registered the highest growth among major US airports.
LHR, CDG, FRA and IST continued with balanced/negative growth since Apr/May. The only exception from top 5 busiest airports in Europe would be AMS which is growing steadily.



September was much less exciting than two busiest summer months, but there was one monthly record broken by MUC.



Also you can see quarterly statistics for greater understanding



From the total passenger statistics you can see that August was second worst month in case of growth this year - only 4.05%. On the other hand September was the second busiest with absolute growth (base for calculation is much higher than in January (551 mil Sept vs 458 mil Jan) and third busiest in % growth.

So far net passenger growth YTD is about 240 mil. In 2015 for the same period (Jan-Sep) net growth was 292 million travelers.



This graph shows the net additional passengers in months (in this case only 930 airports are included)



Here is little view into history - you will see monthly data of transported passengers since 2008



And also % growth per regions



and the last one of monthly ranks

Beijing's skyrocketing figures took me unawares. This airport was supposed to be maxed out since it has already hit its planned operational capacity. However 8.696 million pax in a month means it could handle more than 100 million pax a year before Daxing opens.

I was thinking the same yesterday when I wondering which airport would be the second one to handle more than 100 million passengers. My bet was on PVG but then I started calculating. Daxing suppose to open in Sept-2019 if everything goes according to schedule (this is the latest date known to me) which gives PEK another 36 months of time to grow. Adding roughly 7 million passengers in 3 years is not unrealistic.

Stats for period 2015-11/2016-10 are 93 334 000 passengers.
