Xi'an is now the world fastest growing airport - More cooperations in the making.

The Xi'an Xianyang Airport of which the german FRAPORT AG owns 24,5% is the world's fastest growing international airport. Dr. Wilhelm Bender the chairman of FRAPORT expressed during his recent China visit, great satisfaction with the development of the joint venture.

The Xi'an airport had more than 7,1 millions passengers in the first half of 2009. A growth of 30% compared to 2008.

"Herewith, Xi'an lays clearly over the growth rate of all current airports in China. We are very satisfied that our strategic operations have developed so excellent" said Bender.

In times of dramatically decreasing traffic in many regions of the world, Xi'an shows that FRAPORT's strategy of being present at the right time, in the only growing aviation market - China - is right. Bender also expressed great satisfaction with the work of the first sino-western management team in China`s aviation industry: FRAPORT and the largest share holder of the joint venture, the China West Airport Group.

During his visit in China, Bender also signed a co-operation agreement with the airport in Dalian, in north east China.
