Bavaria: Passenger numbers are increasing rapidly after the end of the Corona doldrums

Fürth (dpa / lby) - After a two-year Corona lull, the number of passengers in Bavarian air traffic has more than tripled this year. From the beginning of January to the end of September, 27.1 million passengers took off and landed at the three airports in Munich, Nuremberg and Memmingen, as the State Statistical Office in Fürth announced on Thursday. Compared to the previous year, this was an increase of 214 percent.

Nothing significant has changed in terms of size: Munich Airport handled 23.1 million passengers, putting it far ahead of Nuremberg, where 2.5 million people boarded and disembarked. Memmingen counted almost 1.5 million passengers. The planes have also become much fuller again: the number of take-offs and landings rose less sharply by 126 percent to 205,348. In the summer, many airlines, including Lufthansa, canceled large numbers of flights due to a lack of staff, leaving tens of thousands of suitcases on the ground.

In the two previous years, passenger numbers had collapsed worldwide due to the pandemic. However, the airports are still a long way from the conditions before the crisis began: in 2019, Munich Airport alone counted almost 48 million passengers.
