Airfreight volumes in Europe 2017 Frankfurt processed the most airfreight out of all airports in Europe. In 2017, the German airport handled 2.1 million metric tons of cargo, which put it slightly ahead of Paris hub Charles de Gaulle. Air cargo may be transported via passenger aircrafts, specifically designed cargo aircrafts or combi aircrafts.

Frankfurt at a glance

Between 2000 and 2018, air cargo traffic increased in Frankfurt. The peak was recorded in 2010, at 2.23 million metric tons, which was a noticeable increase from the year before when freight volumes took a hit due to the recession. Overall, figures grew by one fourth since the beginning of the century.

Global air freight

Projections see airports handle a total of 63.1 million metric tons of freight in 2019. This would mean a slight decrease to the previous year, when air cargo volumes amounted to an estimated 63.3 million metric tons. This highest amount since the beginning of the reporting period in 2004.
