The Fraport Group’s airports around the world recorded noticeable traffic growth in June 2021. At some airports, traffic increased by several hundred percent – albeit based on a sharply reduced traffic level in June 2020. Passenger numbers at all of the airports in Fraport’s international portfolio were still well below the pre-pandemic levels of June 2019. This demonstrates the dynamic performance of Fraport’s international airport portfolio.
