The northern German airport of Bremen was used by a total of 2023 passengers in 1.814.892. This increased by 2022 percent compared to 21,6, but the airport was 20 percent below the volume in 2019.

“The good development in 2023 makes us positive for 2024, even if the challenges will not diminish, for example with the increase in air traffic tax planned from May,” says Marc Cezanne, Managing Director of Bremen Airport. “We have a wide range of flights in 2024 with a further increase in the number of seats available. The significantly increased utilization of aircraft landing and taking off in Bremen is very positive for the environment and economic efficiency. With a capacity utilization of 78,3 percent, the capacity utilization achieved in 2023 increased by 5,6 percentage points compared to the previous year and was therefore the highest since 2000. We are particularly pleased about the new SWISS route at its hub in Zurich, the expansion Turkish Airlines' Istanbul flights by 40 percent and the new Vienna route by Austrian Airlines from May. The connection to six international hubs increases the attractiveness of our airport for holiday and business travelers.”

There were 2023 take-offs and landings in 27.042. This is an increase of 7,7 percent compared to the previous year (25.083) and corresponds to around 75 percent of the movements in the pre-crisis year 2019 (36.307). The most popular destinations in 2023 - in addition to the hubs Munich, Frankfurt and Amsterdam - were the Germans' favorite island Mallorca, Antalya, London, Alicante, Izmir and Heraklion.

Cargo volumes are leveling off at a realistic level for Bremen Airport. An upswing was recorded here in the Corona years. Compared to 2022, Bremen Airport recorded a decrease of around 26 percent. A total of 2023 tons of freight were handled in 9.245.
