Passenger traffic at FRA climbs by 4.1%

In the first half of 2015, the Fraport Group recorded noticeable growth in revenue, rising by 10.6 percent to EUR1.242 billion.

This increase was primarily driven by traffic growth, higher proceeds from the retail business, and currency effects. Fraport´s external business also contributed to revenue growth due to the first-time consolidation of two new Group subsidiaries – AMU Holdings Inc. (Airmall) and Aerodrom Ljubljana.

The Group´s operating result or EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) improved by 8.7 percent to EUR385 million. The Group result advanced by EUR11.3 million year-on-year to EUR103 million. Fraport´s free cash flow grew from EUR107.6 million to EUR189.7 million, reflecting improved operating cash flow as well as lower cash outflow for investments, when compared to the same period of the previous year.

At its Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base, Fraport welcomed about 60 million passengers and handled some 2.2 million metric tons of cargo (airfreight and airmail) in 2014. For the current winter timetable, FRA is served by 98 passenger airlines flying to some 250 destinations in 105 countries worldwide.
