Frankfurt Airport (FRA) continues to be on growth path. FRA
welcomed about 6.4 million passengers in June 2018, representing a
9.8 percent increase compared to the same month last year. Aircraft

to some 2.8 million metric tons. Only cargo traffic (airfreight and
airmail) declined slightly by 2.8 percent to 182,911 metric tons in
the reporting month of June 2018.

In the first half of the year, Frankfurt Airport recorded a 9.1
percent jump in traffic to 32.7 million passengers. This can be

percent to 247,061 takeoffs and landings. Accumulated MTOWs grew by
5.9 percent to about 15.3 million metric tons. FRA's cargo
