Number of air passengers transported in Germany from 2004 to 2019

An increasing number of passengers have been choosing air travel in Germany. In the ten years preceding 2019, figures grew from 166.3 million to 226.9 million.


Air travel has become more widespread due to a larger choice of airlines and offers, as well as the rapid expansion and convenience of online travel bookings. Based on the number of departures taking place in Germany, Lufthansa soared ahead of all airlines, followed by its subsidiary Eurowings. At the same time, the majority of passengers never booked flights with Lufthansa.

Frankfurt/ Main leading passenger airport

While most outbound trips from Germany are made by land, which is understandable considering the established train and motorway network within the country and Europe, air travel is also very popular. Frankfurt/ Main airport saw the most passengers in 2018, followed by Munich and Dusseldorf.
