FRANKFURT, Germany, February 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --



In January 2013, Fraport AG served nearly 3.9 million passengers at its
Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base - down 4.9 percent year-on-year. This
decline was due primarily to the reduction in flight offers implemented by
many airlines for the Winter 2012/13 Timetable. Furthermore, weather-related
flight cancellations - above all, freezing rain and sleet in mid-January -
affected the passenger volume. Excluding this weather effect, the monthly
result would have been at least two percentage points better.

Handling about 150,000 metric tons in January 2013, FRA recorded continuing
light growth in cargo (airfreight + airmail) - up 1.3 percent year-on-year.
Aircraft movements dropped by 6.8 percent to nearly 35,100 takeoffs and
landings in January 2013.

Fraport's majority-owned airports - Frankfurt Airport (FRA), Antalya (AYT),
Burgas (BOJ), Varna (VAR) and Lima (LIM) - together welcomed about 5.7 million
passengers in January 2013, down 1.5 percent year-on-year. Peru's LIM
continued to record dynamic growth, with almost 1.2 million passengers
received in the reporting month. Well over half a million passengers used AYT
on the Turkish Riviera, while the Bulgarian airports of BOJ and VAR on the
Black Sea coast together served about 28,500 passengers.
