Group-wide, Fraport even recorded a 3.3% jump in passenger traffic, serving about t 5.5 million passengers at the six majority-owned airports.

November's figures continued to diminish the traffic decline at FRA in 2009. Following the double-digit in passenger figures at the beginning of the year, the January-to-November 2009 period registered a total of about 47.1 million passengers or a of 5.3 %.

Aircraft movements at FRA slipped in November 2009 by 0.9 % to 38 385 takeoffs and landings. Maximum takeoff weights (MTOWs) fell by one percent year-on-year to about 2.3 million metric tons.
