Passenger numbers June 2013
11 July 2013
A further month of growth has been reported at AIA.
Passenger numbers are just in and show that just over 300,000 people used the airport in June – up 8% on the previous year. That includes a growth of 2.4% in helicopter traffic and an increase in both domestic and international passengers.
Nick Barton, airport MD, said: “These figures are trending positively, which is encouraging to see. That said, we face continued and recently well documented challenges from around the aviation sector, not least the on-going impacts from APD, and as we are all aware a lot can happen in six months. We expect the second half of the year to be as challenging as the first, however there is a great team at AIA, all working to get this airport back to sustained growth.”
