Record Number of Air Passengers Carried at More Than 1.1 Billion in 2018

Record Number of Air Passengers Carried at More Than 1.1 Billion in 2018

In 2018, 1.1 billion passengers travelled by air in the European Union (EU), up by 6% compared with 2017 and by 43% compared with 2010. Over this period, air passenger transport has steadily risen in the EU. In 2018, intra-EU transport represented almost half (46%) of total air passenger transport in the EU and extra-EU transport over a third (37%), while national transport accounted for fewer than 1 in every 5 passengers (16%). These figures are issued by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.

Largest increase in air passenger transport in Lithuania, Latvia, Poland and Slovakia

In 2018, the largest number of air passengers was recorded in the United Kingdom (272 million passengers), followed by Germany (222 million), Spain (221 million), France (162 million) and Italy (153 million). The number of air passengers carried in 2018 rose in all EU Member States compared with 2017. The highest increases were registered in Lithuania (+19%), Latvia, Poland and Slovakia (all +16%), ahead of Estonia and Hungary (both +14%), Malta (+13%), Luxembourg (+12%) and Finland (+11%), whilst the lowest increase was registered in Sweden (+1%), followed by the United Kingdom (+3%), Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands (all +4%). Among the top 5 Member States in terms of air passengers transported in 2018, the highest increase was registered in Italy (+6%).

Overall in the EU, the number of air passengers rose by 62.8 million (+6%) between 2017 and 2018, driven by the rise in extra-EU (+9%) and intra-EU transport (+5%).

Top 3 passenger airports

London/Heathrow remained the EU’s busiest passenger airport in 2018, with 80 million passengers handled, slightly up (+3%) compared with 2017.

Paris/Charles de Gaulle (72 million, +4%), Amsterdam/Schiphol (71 million, +4%), Frankfurt/Main (69 million, +8%) and Madrid/Barajas (56 million, +9%) completed the top 5 of the busiest airports in the EU. They were followed by Barcelona/El Prat (50 million, +6%), München (46 million, +4%), London/Gatwick (46 million, +1%), Roma/Fiumicino (43 million, +5%) and Paris/Orly (33 million, +3%).

Each of the top 30 EU airports registered an increase in the number of passengers handled in 2018, except Hamburg (-2%) and Düsseldorf (-1%). The highest rises among the top 30 EU airports were registered in Budapest/Liszt Ferenc Int. (+14%) and Warszawa/Chopina (+13%), ahead of Athinai/Eleftherios Venizelos, Wien/Schwechat and Helsinki/Vantaa (all +11%), Milano/Malpensa (+10%), Praha/Ruzyne, Lisboa and Madrid/Barajas (all +9%). In 2018, London/Heathrow (48 million) handled the most passengers on extra-EU transport and Amsterdam/Schiphol (42 million) the most on intra-EU transport, while Madrid/Bajaras (16 million) led for national transport
