In the first half of the year, Frankfurt Airport recorded a 9.1 percent jump in traffic to 32.7 million passengers.  This can be attributed to the increased number airline flight offerings, particularly on European routes.  Aircraft movements rose by 8.6 percent to 247,061 takeoffs and landings.  Accumulated MTOWs grew by 5.9 percent to about 15.3 million metric tons.  FRA's cargo throughput reached about 1.1 million metric tons, thus remaining at the previous year's level (up 0.1 percent).
