For the first time, Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport managed to handle more passengers and freight last month than in the same month of the pre-corona year 2019.

A total of 116.500 passengers used the FKB in April 2022. In April 2019 there were still 116.281 passengers who departed or arrived. In addition, cargo throughput increased by more than 60 percent in April. "The signs are pointing to growth again - especially in comparison to before the pandemic," says Airport Manager Uwe Kotzan, who is pleased about the busiest April in the 25-year history of FKB and is confident that the upward trend will continue.

The airport names the low-cost airline Ryanair as a key factor in its success. Since the two machines were stationed at the beginning of 2012, the Irish airline has carried more than 6,2 million passengers to and from FKB. If one were to add the Ryanair flights before being stationed at FKB, the number would be over 10 million passengers since 2003.

Der aktuelle Summer flight schedule am FKB has more than 1,2 million flight seats to 35 destinations in 18 countries, which are served by a total of six airlines.
