Federal Statistical Office reports 6% increase in German airport 2011 pax traffic to 175 million

Germany's Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) stated (17-Feb-2012) German airports handled 175.2 million passengers in 2011, a 5.6% year-on-year increase. Traffic within Germany was characterised by a moderate growth-rate (+1.4%) while 'frontier crossing' services (150.9 million passengers) saw an increase of 6.3%. Traffic with European countries, which covers more than three quarters of international inbound and outbound traffic to/from Germany, increased by 8.4%. Intercontinental traffic (33.7 million) decreased slightly (–0.4%) mainly caused by traffic declines to/from Africa (–16.6%) where double-digit reductions were reported for Tunisia (–35.3%) and Egypt (–28.1%). On the other hand, passenger flows with America and Asia grew by 4.4% and 2.5%, respectively. [more - original PR]
