While the nation's premier international airport in Frankfurt said the number of passengers it handled last month jumped by 5.2 per cent, the country's statistics office reported a similar increase in Germans flying during this year's key summer holiday period.

The Wiesbaden-based statistics office said the number of passengers passing through Germany's airports between April and October climbed by 5.5 per cent to 60.4 million with domestic air traffic reaching its highest point since the early 1950s.

The major destinations for the nation's international travellers were Spain, Turkey and Italy, the statistics office said.
