|Quoting AF B777-300 (Reply 19):|
In 2004, CDG surpassed Frankfurt for the FIRST time as Europe's second busiest airport with 51.3 million passengers, which represents an evolution of 6.3 % with 2003, while Frankfurt handled 51.1 million. ORY handled 24 million passengers (+7.1%/2003). So the figures that Munich posted are not good for CDG. It's great to see ORY increases again.
I think, you are not right AF
B777-300. I know the preliminary ACI-Stats
, where CDG
is with 51,260,363 and +6.3% is in front of FRA
(51,098,271 +5.7%) but it is improbable.
I'm collecting passenger- and movement-statistics since years ago and the experience shows, that the figures at the ACI
-Europe-Page are normaly more exact as the figures on the ACI
The other reason is, I (have) collect(ed) the monthly stats from airports-/ goverments-websites and there is also CDG
barely behind FRA
and 3rd on this French website
there is CDG
with 50,951,316 passengers also behind FRA
(look at page 59.
But we will see. The finally stats by ACI
World are normally available in September every year.
Btw. This year (Jan.-Apr.) CDG
ist a little bit more in front of FRA
like in th same time last year.
2005 Jan-Apr.: 16,128,925 | +4.11% - 2004 Jan.-Apr.: 15,492,319
2004 Jan-Apr.: 15,594,184 | +1.04% - 2004 Jan.-Apr.: 15,433,581
I think this year CDG
will pass FRA
, also finally.
