Cologne Bonn Airport: passenger numbers fall but positive developments in freight

At Cologne/Bonn Airport, the year 2020 was shaped by contrasting developments in terms of traffic volumes. The coronavirus pandemic saw passenger numbers plummeting to levels never experienced before, yet the crisis also brought positive developments for air freight.

Whilst passenger numbers are still far from having made a full recovery, freight transport continues to run at peak levels. The increase in tonnage during the coronavirus crisis was on average 13 percentage points above the average for the German market.
