High five as passenger growth continues

Aberdeen Airport enjoyed a near 5% growth in passenger numbers last month, with both domestic and international traffic posting strong growth.

Latest figures show the number of passengers using Aberdeen Airport increased by 4.8% in November 2011.

Domestic traffic numbers enjoyed the strongest growth, up by 9.1%. International passenger numbers grew by 7.2% and the number of helicopter passengers fell by 13.4%.

Derek Provan, airport MD, said: “It is encouraging to see domestic and international traffic growing at such a strong rate. The launch of new flights to London City and Bristol are a welcome addition to Aberdeen’s domestic route network and will help support business and tourism links between the north-east, London and the south-west of England.”
