Passenger numbersJuly 2013

18/03/2013

The month of July saw passenger numbers increase further at Aberdeen International Airport.

335,631 people used the terminal over the month, an increase of 6.8% on the previous year. There was growth in both the fixed-wing and helicopter sectors, and both domestic and international.

Carol Benzie is the airports Commercial Director. She said: “This growth is very welcome and we are in a good position with seven months of the year under our belts. We recognise that the coming months will likely bring challenges for our sector and our airport specifically, however we are well placed to deal with them.  

“We are coming towards the end of the busy summer holiday period, a lucrative and popular time of year for passengers heading off for some family sun. Meanwhile we continue to work hard to secure extra capacity and new routes for summer 2014, as our recent TUI announcement (see below) demonstrates.”
