Passenger numbers November 2013

Aberdeen International Airport has recorded another month of passenger growth, and is set to end the year on a high note.

Over 287,000 people used the airport last month, up 4.3% on the November of 2012. There was growth in the fixed wing and helicopter passenger numbers of 2.1% and 18.2% respectively.

Carol Benzie, the airport MD, said: “We are hopeful that we can end 2013 on a high note. Growth has been recorded each month for the last three quarters of the year and whilst it is too early to tell, our predictions suggest that the results for December should be equally positive.

“Of course, at this time of year the weather can have a real influence and we watch every forecast with interest. Our snow plans, which are well practised, have been put into place and we have teams on call to react when the weather demands it.

“We expect 2014 to be an exciting and challenging year. Our terminal redevelopment plans will be a focus of our attention and a lot of enabling works will start almost immediately to allow for this transformational project to get underway.  We are grateful to passengers for their patience during this time, and we are all looking forward to seeing the end results in 2017.”
