Frankfurt Airport records significant rise in passenger traffic -
Fraport Group airports see stable trend

Frankfurt Airport (FRA) continues to be on a growth path in the
New Year. In January 2018, Germany's largest aviation hub recorded
4,549,717 passengers (up 7.6 percent). Once again European traffic
was the main growth driver, increasing by 12.6 percent, while
intercontinental traffic rose by 2.6 percent. Cargo (airfreight and
airmail) throughput at Frankfurt Airport advanced by 1.3 percent.

Aircraft movements even surpassed FRA's passenger growth, rising
by 8.6 percent to 36,816 takeoffs and landings - mainly attributable
to European traffic. Accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs)
increased by 6.5 percent to about 2.3 million metric tons.

Fraport's Group airports largely registered positive traffic
performance in January 2018. Ljubljana Airport (LJU) in the Slovenian
capital achieved a 12.3 percent rise to 100,375 passengers. Fraport's
international portfolio now includes the Brazilian airports of
Fortaleza (FOR) and Porto Alegre (POA) since the beginning of the
year. With a combined total of some 1.3 million passengers and an
increase of 0.4 percent, traffic at FOR and POA remained stable in
the reporting month.

Together, the 14 Greek regional airports posted a 5.1 percent
slowdown in traffic to a total of 549,506 passengers. This is
primarily due to runway renovation works at Thessaloniki Airport
(SKG) - Fraport Greece's busiest airport - which reported 309,586
passengers in the reporting month (down 12.2 percent). After SKG, the
second and third busiest airports were Rhodes (RHO) with 58,673
passengers (up 6.3 percent) and Chania (CHQ) with 43,255 passengers
(down 36.2 percent).

At Lima Airport (LIM) in the Peruvian capital, traffic increased
by 9.3 percent to about 1.8 million passengers. Fraport's Twin Star
Airports of Varna (VAR) and Burgas (BOJ) on the Bulgarian Black Sea
coast together welcomed 72,905 passengers, up 85.4 percent. Welcoming
800,077 air travelers, Antalya Airport (AYT) on the Turkish Riviera
recorded a gain of 18.4 percent - thus continuing its rebound in
January 2018. In northern Germany, Hanover Airport (HAJ) served
321,703 passengers (up 7.0 percent). St. Petersburg Airport (LED) in
Russia reported a 9.8 percent increase in traffic to about 1.1
million passengers. Due to the Chinese New Year's festival occurring
later this year, Xi'an Airport (XIY) remained close to the previous
year's level with some 3.3 million passengers in January 2018 (down
0.1 percent).
