Passenger revenue up by 170 percent
Hahn Airport further along the road to success – with more than 380,000 air travellers passenger revenue almost tripled compared with the previous year – parallel growth in the cargo area of around 70 percent to nearly 75,000 tonnes – aircraft movements up by almost 20 percent
Hahn, 05. February 2001. Hahn Airport is able to show impressive year-end results for passenger and airfreight revenue for the year 2000. In the Hunsrück one can be particularly proud of the growth in passenger revenue of 170 percent. A six-figure number was achieved for the first time in 1999 with 140,706 passengers. Now the figure is well on the way to half a million: 380,283 air travellers chose Hahn for their flights in the year 2000 and the trend is still on the increase.
The dynamic development of the previous year is also continued in the airfreight area. The capacity in the cargo area was increased by 70 percent to 74,958 tonnes (1999: 43,675 tonnes). The successful trend since civil flights began in 1993 is thus sustained.
In 1997, the amount of airfreight dispatched from Hahn was just 5,501 tonnes. In the last four years of trading by Flughafen Hahn GmbH an increase in capacity of nearly fourteen times has been achieved in the cargo area.
If one looks at the airfreight including the road feeder services (RFS) then a total of 191,000 tonnes have been moved (1999: 160,437 tonnes).
Jörg Schumacher, Managing Director of Flughafen Hahn GmbH on this topic: “The figures clearly demonstrate that Hahn Airport has further expanded its position as an international passenger airport. The resources we have at our disposal and the co-operation with our main shareholder Fraport AG, in other words Frankfurt Airport, are showing us the way to go. Our objective for 2001 is to improve the results still further”.
Aircraft movements in the Hunsrück showed an overall increase compared with 1999 of 18.83 percent from 19,632 to a total of 23,330. At the present time, 1,650 employees at Hahn Airport make their contribution towards this.
