Passenger traffic registered a 7.2 percent decline compared to the same month last year. FRA last experienced a comparable collapse in traffic during the Gulf War. Up to the time of the attacks on September 11, demand increased. Afterwards, a noticeable change in passenger volumes occurred. Following the reopening of American air space and the subsequent clearing of the traffic backlog, traffic normalized to a large extent. After September 20, Frankfurt Airport again experienced a double-digit drop in traffic. Airfreight development showed a clear decline on all routes. The number of aircraft movements dropped only slightly, but capacity utilization deteriorated noticeably. The number of passengers per passenger flight declined to 123 in September, down from 132 in the corresponding month last year. Frankfurt Airport's punctuality rate could be increased again. Fraport AG cannot yet offer any forecast figures regarding the further development of air traffic to the end of the year and corporate results for 2001. ots Original Text Service: Fraport AG Internet: www.presseportal.de Contact: Fraport AG Frankfurt Airport Services Worldwide Attn: Robert A.
