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.
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.
