A total of 1,406,578 passengers were handled at the Berlin airports in January, 5.8 per cent more than in the same month the previous year.

Flight movements in January totalled 16,679 take-offs and landings, 0.8 per cent less than in the same month the previous year.

455,943 passengers were recorded at Schoenefeld Airport in January, representing a 9.9 per cent increase.

950,635 passengers were recorded in Tegel in the reporting month, 3.9 per cent more than in the same month the previous year.

At 1,800 tons, air freight flown rose by 16.4 per cent. As air freight is generally an early indication of economic development, signs of an economic recovery are thus beginning to emerge for Berlin.

All traffic figures are based on preliminary figures.
