Fraport AG and Swissport signed a long-term lease agreement for a new air cargo facility in CargoCity South at Frankfurt Airport (FRA). Fraport is developing a new custom-built air cargo warehouse for Swissport at CargoCity South.
In the first three months of 2018, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) welcomed more than 14.4 million passengers – an increase of 10.0 percent compared to the same period of the previous year. This strong growth was mainly attributable to the early timing of the Easter holidays and a significant expansion of flight offerings from airlines.
FRA/st – In summer 2018, 99 airlines will fly from Frankfurt Airport (FRA) to 311 destinations in 97 countries around the world. The new summer flight schedule will take effect on March 25. Next to additional long-haul routes, it will also introduce a number of new connections from Frankfurt to European connections.
Following a tender process, Fraport AG has awarded the contract for the construction of the new people-mover system at Frankfurt Airport (FRA) to a bidding consortium made up of Siemens, Max Bögl Group and Keolis. Along with the actual people-mover system (consisting of vehicles, control systems, and energy supply), the contract signed today also covers construction of part of the track system and the full track equipment.
The Fraport Group can look back on a highly successful 2017 fiscal year (ending December 31), in which revenue and earnings targets were fully reached. Supported by significant traffic growth at all of the Group’s airports, revenue climbed by almost 13.5 percent to €2.93 billion.
