Fraport Traffic Figures - January 2013: Cargo Grows - Passenger Slowdown Due to Winter Timetable Reductions

FRANKFURT, Germany, February 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --



In January 2013, Fraport AG served nearly 3.9 million passengers at its Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base - down 4.9  percent year-on-year. This decline was due primarily to the reduction in flight offers implemented by many airlines for the Winter 2012/13 Timetable.  Furthermore, weather-related flight cancellations - above all, freezing rain and sleet in mid-January - affected the passenger volume. Excluding this weather effect, the monthly result would have been at least two percentage points better.

Handling about 150,000 metric tons in January 2013, FRA recorded continuing light growth in cargo (airfreight + airmail) - up 1.3 percent year-on-year. Aircraft movements dropped by 6.8 percent to nearly 35,100 takeoffs and landings in January 2013.

Fraport's majority-owned airports - Frankfurt Airport (FRA), Antalya (AYT), Burgas (BOJ), Varna (VAR) and Lima (LIM) - together welcomed about 5.7 million passengers in January 2013, down 1.5 percent year-on-year.  Peru's LIM continued to record dynamic growth, with almost 1.2 million passengers received in the reporting month.  Well over half a million passengers used AYT on the Turkish Riviera, while the Bulgarian airports of BOJ and VAR on the Black Sea coast together served about 28,500 passengers.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
