In the second quarter, ie from April to June, almost 694.000 passengers traveled via Dortmund Airport.
391.900 passengers used the airport - more than ever during the summer holidays. The number of passengers is even two percent higher than in the top year 2019 and four percent higher than in 2021, as the airport announced in a broadcast. The top destinations were Katowice, Palma de Mallorca, Bucharest, Sofia, Vienna and Antalya in Turkey, to which SunExpress will also fly next winter.
"We are very happy about the extremely positive development," says Guido Miletic, Head of Services & Marketing at Dortmund Airport. "The variety of destinations offers something for everyone - for both business and private trips."
The second quarter of 2022 was already characterized by high growth rates. The airport welcomed 693.798 travelers in April, May and June. That is 130 percent more than in the same period in 2021 with a good 302.000 passengers - and almost as many as in the pre-Corona year 2019. At that time there were almost 715.000 passengers.
