The number of passengers at Frankfurt airport has fallen sharply due to the crisis surrounding the corona virus. According to airport operator Fraport, the number of processed travelers at the airport plummeted by nearly 75 percent to 331,353 between March 16 and 22.

The number of flight movements at Germany’s largest airport shrank by more than 58 percent to 3,960. In freight transport, the volume decreased by more than 20 percent. Air traffic has largely come to a halt due to the corona crisis. Fraport has introduced a working time reduction for the vast majority of its staff in order to cope with the slump in the aviation sector.

Schiphol has not yet released figures on the number of travelers after February.
