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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT.

Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
