The drivers of the growth were, besides the European traffic (+6.0%), the intercontinental traffic (+8.4 %). The traffic within Germany was only less than average (source: ADV Traffic Statistics 2017). In the last few months of 2017 air traffic suffered under the insolvency of Air Berlin. On 27 October 2017 Air Berlin discontinued its entire air traffic, the longhaul flights had been discontinued over the course of October 2017 already. The growth in Germany subsequently weakened since September 2017, in December the passenger volume in Germany recorded a minus of 1.0 %. This in particular related to the main airports of Air Berlin Berlin-Tegel and Düsseldorf, the other larger airports were able to continue to record a growth. In Europe growth in 2017 will be driven by the stronger Airline Groups IAG, Lufthansa Group and Air France / KLM however also Low Cost Airlines easyJet and Ryanair. In total 4,983,656 tons of air freight was moved by the German airport in the fiscal year. This therefore increased by 6.4 %. Both the number of unloading (+6.8 % to 2,320,344 tons) as well as the loading movements (+6.6 % to 2,573,941 tons) increased in 2017. B.

Operative problems with Ryanair led at the same time in Schönefeld to a weakening in the growth and a fall in passengers in November and December 2017.

The airlines were able to increase their average capacity utilisation to 79.0 % due to the loss of Air Berlin. This was therefore 2.5 per cent above the level of the previous year. Almost all airlines recorded a high growth in passengers in 2017 due to the loss of Air Berlin. At Ryanair, Lufthansa Swiss, Austrian, Finnair, Wizzair and further airlines this was in the two-digit range. However, the growth was not sufficient in order to fully compensate for the negative effects by the Air-Berlin insolvency. With a total of 33.3 million passengers Berlin continues to be the third biggest airport location in Germany. In total flights were offered to 193 destinations in 58 countries. 90 Airlines flew to the airports in Berlin in 2017. a) Traffic development in detail Traffic volume 2017 2016 Tegel Commercial aircraft movements 168,800 181,541 Passengers (thousands) 20,461 21,254 Schönefeld Commercial aircraft movements 94,400 89,585 Passengers (thousands) 12,865 11,653 Total Commercial aircraft movements 263,200 271,126 Passengers (thousands) 33,326 32,907 At Tegel Airport the passenger volume fell by 3.7 % owing to the Air-Berlin insolvency.
