Munich traffic up 9%

By Administrator |

Munich Airport handled approximately 21.7m passengers in the first nine months of 2005, nearly 7% more than in the same period a year earlier. ‘This growth rate places us in the top third of Europe's

ten busiest passenger airports again this year, which means we are still an important driver of growth in the European aviation industry,’ said Munich Airport Ceo Dr. Michael Kerkloh.
Segments pushing this development were the low-cost carriers (+32%) and intercontinental traffic (+14%). Each of these segments reported 2.6m passengers, or 12% of the total, so that they now jointly account for one-quarter of the total passenger volume.
On the long-haul routes it was mainly flights to the USA, Thailand, China and India that generated traffic gains. The low-cost segment benefited from new routes launched by dba, Hapag Lloyd Express, Germanwings and Fly Nordic. A total of 28 destinations are now served from Munich by 10 low-cost carriers. Within Europe, the strongest growth rates were posted on Scandinavian and eastern European routes.
