The table shows information about how many people visited Germany through three major airports.
Over five years, there was a fluctuant trend in the number of travellers who travelled via Dusseldorf, while the other two airports saw an upward trend. Another interesting point is that Frankfurt airport was the most popular in the end.
Looking at the details, the number of passengers at Dusseldorf started at 27.2 million in 2007 and then increased remarkably to reach the highest point of 48.2 million in 2009. In 2011, the figure dipped to 33.2 million. In 2012, there was a slight growth to 45.6 million. On the other hand, Frankfort began at 36.5 million in 98; after that, it rose remarkably for the next three years, to 47.3 million. In 2012, Frankfort hit the peak point at 69.3 million passengers.
However, if we look at Berlin Tegel airport, it started at the lowest point of 17.3 million travellers in the first year. After this point, the trend increased significantly to 43.3 million passengers.
