Passenger numbers January 2013

18/03/2013

Aberdeen International Airport has recorded its 24th month of consecutive growth, after posting a 0.6% increase in passenger numbers for the month of January, compared to the previous year.

There was growth in both the domestic and international markets, but a decline in helicopter numbers continues to affect the traffic figures, down 11.1%.

MD Derek Provan said “The on-going issues with the helicopter fleet are having an impact on our figures, and we are working closely with all three operators to understand their respective operational issues.

“We had a positive year in 2012, and we are starting 2013 with further growth, however this set of figures reflects how challenging the market remains.”
