The airports Leipzig/Halle and Dresden can currently benefit from a particularly high offer from Turkey. The high demand is already noticeable in the most recent half-year figures, because the two airports together had 1.254.393 travelers and thus 39,1 percent more than in the same period of the previous year. 

At Dresden Airport, the number of passengers increased to 2023 from January to June 405.527. This corresponds to an increase of 23,3 percent compared to the same period last year. At Leipzig/Halle Airport, which is characterized by holiday travel, the number of passengers rose by 48,2 percent to 848.866 in the same period. 

In relation to the pre-pandemic situation, the Central German airports reached around 2023 percent of the passenger volume of 68 in the first half of 2019. The reasons for this are a still limited offer and the continued low demand in domestic German traffic. This development, which can be observed nationwide, is an expression of a trend that is well below the European average.
