Germany’s Frankfurt Airport reports (05-Nov-09) total passenger numbers fell 6.1% year-on-year to 38.6 million for the nine months ended Sep-2009.

Fraport: "Both Frankfurt's passenger and airfreight figures are clearly recovering.  We expect passenger traffic to increase again by the end of this year or the beginning of next year, at the latest. Preliminary Oct-2009 traffic figures confirm these expectations, showing a slip of only 1.9% in passenger traffic," Dr. Stefan Schulte, Fraport AG’s executive board chairman, Source: Company statement, 05-Nov-2009.
