FraportIn November 2017, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) served more than five million passengers, achieving an increase of 21.1 percent year-on-year. However, November 2016 was characterized by a large number of strike-related flight cancellations.  Adjusting for this effect, FRA still recorded noticeable passenger growth of 11.8 percent, attributable to the significant expansion of airline flight offerings for the winter schedule 2017/18.
