Tonnage up in August across Germany’s airports

Tonnage up in August across Germany’s airports

Total cargo tonnage levels across airports in Germany rose year-on-year (YOY) by 4.2 per cent to 364,205 tonnes in August, according to the German Airports Association.

The association says it is the ninth consecutive month of growth and the strong August lifted YOY cargo growth for the year so far.

Gateways in Germany have handled 2,959,047 tonnes – a 2.1 per cent YOY increase on the same eight months last year.

Cargo hubs across the country have all recorded good growth this year, including Frankfurt Airport – the country’s busiest, Liepzig/Halle Airport – the second busiest and others which are growing fast like Munich Airport.

But the German Airports Association says the market remains unsettled due to the prevailing overcapacity, but still expects similar growth rates for the rest of the year.
