Academic IELTS Writing Task 1 Topic 35Model answer:

The table shows information about how many people visited Germany through three major airports, over a five-year period, there was a fluctuant trend in the number of travelers who travelled via Dusseldorf, while the other two airports saw an upward trend. Another interesting point is that Frankfurt airport was the most popular at the end.

Looking at the detail, the number of passengers at Dusseldorf started at 27.2m in 2007, and then increased remarkably to reach the highest point of 48.2m in 2009. In 2011, the figure dipped to 33.2m. At the last year, there was a slight growth to 45.6m. On the other hand, Frankfort began at 36.5m in 98, after that it rose remarkably for the next three years, at 47.3m. In 2012, Frankfort hit the peak point at 69.3m passengers.
