Frankfurt/Main, Germany (ots)

Frankfurt Airport's Summer
Timetable 2004 - which goes into effect on March 28 - will feature
112 scheduled airlines offering a total of  4,217 flights per week to
300 destinations in 109 countries.  Slightly more weekly departures
(4,290) were registered for the Summer Timetable 2003; however, due
to the Iraq war and SARS epidemic only 93 percent of the planned
flights were actually realized.  The total number of airline seats
being offered at Frankfurt Airport (FRA) will increase from 693,153
last summer timetable to 697,871 this year.  The  major growth
regions for the Summer Timetable 2004, above all, will be Eastern
Europe and the Far East.  New destinations include Kuching, Borneo,
with Malaysia Airlines from March 28; and Ufa, Russia, served by
Lufthansa from May 1.
Frankfurt Airport's busiest routes this summer season will be in
Europe.  The top route will be FRA to Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG)
with 128 weekly connections, followed closely by London-Heathrow
(LHR) with 124 connections, and Berlin-Tegel (TXL) with 111
connections.
In intercontinental traffic, Frankfurt's busiest routes will be
Chicago (ORD) with 38 connections per week, followed by New
