AeroGround, Munich Airport’s ground handling company, is celebrating its fifth anniversary in Munich and the first full year of operations by AeroGround Berlin in Schönefeld this year. AeroGround was founded in 2011 as an independent subsidiary of Flughafen München GmbH as part of the reorganization and restructuring of ground handling services.
The booming traffic trend at Munich Airport shows no sign of slowing down: In the first nine months of the current operating year, the airport set yet another record for total passengers, at 31.3 million – a gain of about 4 percent over the same period in 2014. The number of take-offs and landings also increased by more than 3,000 (1.1 percent) to nearly 288,000. In the third quarter, the Bavarian hub posted several all-time highs: the nearly 12 million passengers using the airport between July and September represent a new record for a calendar quarter in Munich.
On the back of strong gains in passenger and freight figures, Munich Airport achieved outstanding financial results in 2014, with consolidated revenue again showing a slight year-on-year increase to approximately 1.2 billion euros. Based on preliminary figures, earnings after taxes (EAT) for the FMG Group amounted to 100 million euros, and thus matched the high level of the previous year.
