Flying start for 2015 passenger figures
The first set of monthly passenger numbers from Aberdeen International Airport just released show that the year started with further growth, despite challenging weather conditions across the UK.
January 2015 was up 0.5% on the same month last year, with 252,561 people passing through the airport. Both helicopter and fixed wing passenger numbers grew, by 2.1% and 0.1% respectively.
Airport MD Carol Benzie said: “We are delighted to see passenger numbers holding strong despite testing weather conditions throughout January, including high winds, snow and ice. Historically January is one of the quietest months of the year for us following the peak of December’s holiday season and we are pleased to report a sustained increase ‘.
