Frankfurt Airport (FRA) saw a continuing trend of recent months with a 1.4 per cent drop in cargo volumes to 159,721 tonnes in February compared to a year ago. The airport saw a similar trend to other airports on the passenger side with passenger numbers up 3.8 per cent year-on-year.

The airport’s Accumulated Maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) rise 6.2 per cent to about 2.2 million tonnes, or by 2.3 per cent when excluding the February 29 leap day.  FRA’s aircraft movements climbed by 3.5 per cent to 34,097 takeoffs and landings, down by 0.2 per cent when excluding the leap day.  The over-proportional growth in MTOWs versus aircraft movements – and the resulting utilisation of larger aircraft types – continued in February 2016.
