passenger increase of 2.3%
In July 2014 the number of passengers handled by Vienna Airport was up 2.3% in a year-on-year comparison to 2,214,208 people. Total flight movements climbed by 1.1%, whereas growth was also recorded for the maximum take-off weight (+5.4%) and cargo volume (+10.3%).
The number of transfer passengers at Vienna Airport fell by 5.4% from the prior-year level. One major factor underlying this development was the passenger decline to Eastern European destinations as a consequence of the crisis situation in the Ukraine. The number of local passengers rose by 5.6% in the same period, which largely compensated for the crisis-related drop in transfer passenger traffic.
The number of passengers departing for Western Europe in July 2014 was up 1.9%, in contrast to the 4.9% decrease in passengers travelling to Eastern Europe. The Middle East reported a 2.0% drop in July 2014, whereas passenger traffic to the Far East was up 26.5%. Passenger volumes to North America rose sharply, climbing by 30.2% compared to July 2013. This development is mainly due to the launch of flight service to Newark, USA by Austrian Airlines and the increase in the frequency of its flights to Chicago.
