According to preliminary figures, 2022 passengers took off and landed at Stuttgart Airport from January to June 2.800.789. That is 338,5 percent more than in the previous year (638.667).

The number of flight movements increased by 189,4 percentage points to 26.623 take-offs and landings. Compared to the passenger numbers of 2019, the record year before the start of the corona pandemic, the number of passengers is currently around two thirds, as the airport announced in a broadcast.

"From Easter onwards, after the travel restrictions were lifted, demand skyrocketed - after two years of almost standing still during the pandemic, this is a tour de force for the entire aviation industry. We have managed this well so far and as of today are also prepared for the second half of the year. Long-term forecasts remain difficult, but we expect more than six million passengers by the end of the year,” says Walter Schoefer, CEO of Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH.
