    Passenger traffic at Frankfurt Airport (FRA) increased by 2.4
percent in August 2001, versus the corresponding month last year.
While there was clearly more European passenger traffic,
intercontinental traffic - especially to and from North America -
registered a slight decline.
    
    In the airfreight sector, August also experienced a strong decline
over the previous year.  Particularly because of noticeable
developments resulting from the global impact of the weak U.S.
economy, there was meanwhile a clear decline in airfreight activity.
Airfreight tonnage developed postively on South American and
Australian routes.
    
    The weak demand in airfreight traffic was the main reason for a
slight drop in the number of takeoffs and landings (-0.2 percent) at
FRA. The share of delayed flights at FRA, in comparison to the same
month last year, declined  from 19.8 to 18.2 percent. The latest
punctuality statistics from the Association of European Airlines
(AEA) rank Frankfurt ahead of Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid, Rome, Zürich,
as well as Munich, which all registered greater delay rates.
