Munich Airport freight volume up

01.18.2022

Munich Airport’s total 2021 airfreight volume was 22,000 metric tons higher than 2020.

This corresponds to an increase in freight volume of just under 15% and a 2021 throughput of 167,000 metric tons, stated the airport.

«Airfreight increased considerably in comparison with 2020, particularly due to a significant increase in ‘cargo-only’ traffic,» it added.

A total of roughly 153,000 take-offs and landings took place in 2021.

Passenger numbers rose by 1.4m, more than 12%, to a total of 12.5m passengers. However, passenger volume represents only slightly over a quarter of the airport’s results for 2019.

Like other airports across the world, Munich Airport’s cargo volumes were hit by the pandemic.
