The airport operator Fraport has handled more passengers than last year in January in Frankfurt. Also, the cargo went up. The reasons for this lie primarily in China.
In January, the Frankfurt airport has been used by over four million passengers. This corresponds to the previous year, an increase of 3.4 percent, the airport operator Fraport said today. Cargo tonnage increased during the same period by 7.2 percent to around 161,000 tonnes. The cargo division also benefited from a very high early demand in the Far East market before the celebrations around the Chinese New Year.
