City Airport Bremen presents good figures for 2010
The figures for passenger volume at City Airport Bremen climbed to a new record in 2010, despite days of closed airspace due to the ash cloud, strikes in several European countries and the heavy onset of winter. Around 2.7 million passengers produced a new record in the roughly 100 years of the airport’s history – 230,000 passengers more than in the year before.
In terms of national rankings, Airport Bremen is now placed 12th among the 23 international commercial airports in Germany. Compared to immediate competitors, the airport has the highest passenger volume growth rate, at 9.3% − against an average 4.7% rate for all commercial German airports.
City Airport Bremen thus finished the 2010 financial year with very encouraging results. By achieving such growth last year as well, Airport Bremen lived up to its role as the “flywheel” for the tourist industry in Bremen and the Northwest region.
“With growth to 2.7 million passengers in the 2010 financial year, City Airport Bremen reached a new all-time high – a superb result and a new record in the history of Bremen Airport. We are delighted about the new passenger record, which we achieved despite a difficult year that featured the ash cloud, strikes and hard winter weather. The large number of passengers bolsters our strong position as the Northwest’s favourite airport and also shows that the airport is in demand like never before”, says Olaf Bogen, CFO of Airport Bremen.
In June 2010, Airport Bremen celebrated a new historical record when the monthly passenger figure hit 251,898 – thus exceeding the quarter-million mark for the first time. After record months in June and July, the growth curve for City Airport Bremen became even steeper – passenger numbers increased in August by 20% year-on-year to a peak of around 265,100.
22 national and international airlines offered direct flights to 49 destinations in Germany, Europe and North Africa – never before have there been so many direct flights from Bremen.
The key financial figures also show that City Airport Bremen performed well last year – in 2010, Flughafen Bremen GmbH generated around 39 million euro in revenue, a year-on-year increase of more than one million euro. Operating profit improved by 2.4 million euro.
Airport Bremen GmbH does not receive any government grants or assistance of any kind and will remain entirely self-financing in the future as well.
New services on offer
City Airport Bremen scored well on the service front, too, in 2010. With its new online travel portal, City Airport Bremen recently extended its range of services. Potential travellers can now book their flights and holidays, direct from Bremen, online under www.airport-bremen.de/reisen.
The City Airport Bremen App means that the airport is also far ahead when it comes to mobile service applications – released in August last year, the App has been downloaded no fewer than 3,400 times and rates well among customers. The parking calculator at www.airport-bremen.de, with which travellers can calculate their parking charges quickly and conveniently has also been very well received.
A positive impression is also conveyed by the list of new direct routes from Bremen – just in time for New Year, City Airport Bremen provided sunlovers in Bremen and the
Northwest region with fantastic prospects for the next summer holiday, with Ryanair flights to Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Ibiza, Tenerife, Tallinn and the Moroccan city of Marrakesh. A new route from Bremen to Naples is being launched by the OLT airline this coming summer.
Over the next few years, Airport Bremen plans to invest in a new operating system for the multistorey car parks, in new vehicles for the airport fire service, in aircraft ground handling and in IT; reinvestments in the runways will also be a central focus.
