German airport operator Fraport sees earnings boost on high travel demand

The German group, which operates 28 airports around the world, expects group earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) to reach the upper half of the previously projected range of 1.04-1.20 billion euros (USD 1.14-USD 1.32 billion) this year. Net profit should come in at the upper half of a range of 300-420 million euros, it said.

In the first seven months of the year, Aena airports handled 159.2 million passengers, 21% more than in 2022, and 1.2% more than in 2019. This year’s rebound in leisure travel was led by pandemic-weary travellers from cooler climates visiting Southern Europe despite rising temperatures and soaring hotel and flight prices.

International travel reached around 90% of pre-pandemic levels this year, according to the International Air Transport Association.
