2018 was an exciting, challenging and varied year for Düsseldorf Airport. The demand on the part of airlines for slots remained high; our network of routes places us in an excellent position in what is a fastchanging market. People love to travel to and from Düsseldorf Airport, as confirmed by the results of a recent passenger survey. All of this serves to reinforce our market leadership among airports in the Rhine- Ruhr region and throughout the state of North Rhine- Westphalia as a whole. The number of passengers, and the number of take-offs and landings, in 2018 was approximately the same as in the previous year. The year-end profit amounted to EUR 59.1 million, in spite of the discontinuation of the operations of Air Berlin, formerly our major carrier. In a joint endeavor with our partners and employees, we have managed to restore the extent of our air traffic services over the course of a year. In relocating its long-haul services to Düsseldorf, Eurowings has clearly demonstrated the attractiveness of our location. However, the moves made by other airlines, such as Condor and Tuifly, to increase their flight routes undertaken have also gone some way to ensuring that Düsseldorf Airport will be able to continue along its growth trajectory in the future.
