Frankfurt Main, Germany (ots) - In the scheduled passenger segment alone, Frankfurt Airport's Winter Timetable 2001 - which goes into effect on October 28 - features 4,140 direct connections per week. This is only 10 flights less than last year's corresponding timetable, although there had been indications up to last week that some Lufthansa flights would be cancelled as a result of the September 11 incident.
For the Winter Timetable 2001, the total seat capacity being offered is 630,000 seats per week. Some 101 scheduled passenger airlines link FRA with 270 destinations in 104 countries around the globe. New carriers in the timetable include: Asiana Airlines, Montenegro Airlines and TAM.
Several new nonstop passenger destinations have also been added to this year's winter timetable: Bangalore (India), Denver (U.S.A.), Gdansk (Poland), Grenada (Caribbean), Jakarta (Indonesia), La Romana (Dominican Republic), Marseille (France), Phoenix (U.S.A.), Salvadore de Bahia (Brazil), Sharm el Sheikh (Egypt), and Taipei (Taiwan). The top-ranked destinations in terms of weekly flight connections are Paris-Charles de Gaulle (118 weekly connections), London-Heathrow (113) and Berlin-Tegel (107). Other destinations with particularly frequent connections include Bangkok (28 weekly connections) and Singapore (25) in Asia and New York-JFK (28) and Chicago (28) in the United States.
With 260 weekly connections, the number of scheduled direct cargo-only services has also remained relatively unchanged compared to last year's corresponding timetable. The majority (225) of these scheduled cargo services link FRA with airports overseas. Overall, the cargo timetable features 12 airlines offering regular airfreight services to 64 destinations in 40 countries. New cargo destinations are Auckland (New Zealand), Honolulu (U.S.A.) and Manchester (U.K.).
