Passenger numbers January 2014
The first set of monthly passenger numbers from Aberdeen International Airport are just out, and show that the year started with further growth.
January 2014 was up 9.8% on the same month last year, with almost 251,400 people passing through the airport. Both helicopter and fixed wing passenger numbers grew, by 17.8% and 8.5% respectively.
Airport MD Carol Benzie said: “2014 is now well underway, and to be reporting a strong set of results gives us confidence in the future. “This year will not be without its challenges, not least working hard to ensure that our terminal redevelopment plans can continue at pace with minimal disruption to passengers. These passenger numbers also strengthen the case we make in our on-going discussion with airlines around new routes as we continue to try to improve our leisure travel offering. We are all hopeful that this positive trend in passenger growth can continue.”
