May is a good month for cargo at Frankfurt Airport
Jun 13, 2017: Frankfurt Airport’s (FRA) cargo throughput rose by 5.1 percent to 186.547 metric tonnes in the month of May, thus achieving the highest May volume in six years. Growth was buoyed by a more favorable economic environment which, in particular, had a positive impact on the eurozone's industrial sector, resulting in higher exports. Aircraft movements climbed by 1.8 percent to 41,915 takeoffs and landings.
In May 2017, passenger traffic at FRA continued to increase significantly, rising by 5.7 percent to 5.6 million passengers. Growth was positively impacted by a lower number of public holidays compared to the same month last year.

During the January-to-May 2017 period, FRA posted accumulated passenger growth of 4.3 percent.
