Fraport Traffic Figures - October 2012: Passenger Figures Climb, Cargo Tonnage Declines - Hurricane Sandy Impacts Traffic

FRANKFURT, Germany, November 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Frankfurt Airport (FRA) served approximately 5.2 million passengers in October 2012, up 1.4 percent year-on-year. Despite Hurricane Sandy's effect on some flights to and from FRA at the end of the month, traffic growth continued in October 2012.  Cargo (airfreight and airmail) tonnage declined by 7.3 percent year-on-year to about 180,000 metric tons.  Aircraft movements rose by 1.1 percent year-on-year to about 43,000 takeoffs and landings. The accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOW) dropped by 0.8 percent to approximately 2.6 million metric tons.  

Fraport's five consolidated airports - with at least a 50 percent share:  Frankfurt Airport (FRA), Antalya (AYT), Burgas (BOJ), Varna (VAR) and Lima (LIM) - grew by 2.7 percent year-on-year to a total of 9.1 million passengers in October 2012. In particular, LIM in the Peruvian capital city recorded strong 14.9 percent growth and welcomed 1.2 million passengers.  Serving some 2.7 million passengers, AYT on the Turkish Riviera sustained and even bettered last year's October figure by 0.5 percent.  On the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, BOJ and VAR together received about 67,000 passengers, down 4.2 percent year-on-year.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal.
