Munich Airport will continue its ascent.
Munich Airport set a new record for passenger traffic in the first six months of the 2018 operating year, with a total of 21.7 million passengers handled. This represents an increase of about 3 percent. The number of take-offs and landings was up slightly as compared with the first half of 2017 to around 200,000. Growth was dampened somewhat in the first half by an unusually high number of flight cancellations, largely due to thunderstorms. There were 2,600 more cancelled flights than in the first half of 2017. The total airfreight tonnage, at approximately 173,000 tonnes, was down by 3 percent on a year-over-year basis.
Munich Airport's new integrated report, entitled "Showing Class", is now available in an interactive online version on the airport's website. It presents the traffic statistics and key financial data for 2017 and provides information on the wide-ranging activities in support of sustainable airport operations, including all measures to reduce CO2 emissions. Munich Airport aims to become Germany's first carbon-neutral airport by 2030.
