Successful outcome for holiday traffic at Berlin Airports

24.08.2007
Rise in passenger numbers during the summer holidays 2007 / Moderate German summer encourages demand for sunny holiday destinations
As the summer holidays in Berlin and Brandenburg come to an end, an initial review of flight traffic can be undertaken for this period. In comparison to last year, holiday flight traffic at Berlin Airports increased by around 7 per cent in 2007. During the holidays which started on 12 July and ended on 26 August, around 2.8 million passengers flew to and from Berlin.

As was to be expected, most holidaymakers were drawn towards the south on account of the rather inconsistent weather in Germany. High passenger numbers were recorded by Spanish holiday destinations such as Barcelona, Madrid and Palma de Mallorca while city trips to large cities such as Paris, Zurich and London were also very popular among air passengers.

In a comparison of passenger figures for this summer with those of summer 2006, southern travel destinations such as Milan and Rimini recorded the greatest relative growth. But new destinations in Western Europe were also popular – Gothenburg (an Air Berlin destination since May) is met with a positive response by passengers.
