Aviation in Germany can celebrate a new record: In the first half of 2019, more passengers flew from a German airport than ever before. The Federal Statistical Office reported that a total of 58.9 million people used one of Germany's 24 main airports. This was 4.1 per cent more than in the same period of the previous year. The number of domestic flights grew by 2.3 per cent and the number of passengers travelling abroad grew by 4.5 per cent.


On the other hand, air freight suffered losses: Including airmail, the volume of freight carried fell by 3.3 per cent to 2.3 million tonnes in the first half of 2019. As a result, the volume of air freight received and dispatched since November 2018 has declined throughout the same month of the previous year, as the Federal Office reported.
