Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 14 October 2008

BAA’s UK airports handled a total of 13.3 million passengers in September 2008, 5% fewer than in the same month last year. Year to date, BAA´s UK airport traffic shows a decline of 1.4% for the nine months to September at a total of 113.4 million.

Markets saw reductions during the month with the largest being a 12.6% decrease in European charter traffic, partly as a result of the closure of XL Airways on the 12th of the month. North Atlantic traffic was down by 6.8% and other long haul routes by 6%. European scheduled traffic achieved the best result with a drop of just 2.2%.

Among individual airports Heathrow’s passenger total fell by 3.6% overall, despite a 9.6% increase in North Atlantic traffic. European scheduled traffic at Heathrow was down by 8.1%. Gatwick’s pattern was a mirror image of Heathrow with North Atlantic traffic 44% (mainly due to the introduction of the ‘Open Skies’ Agreement) lower but European scheduled up by 8.8%.

Stansted’s passenger total fell by 4.7% overall, with European scheduled traffic down by 2.9% and domestic by 0.8%. Southampton recorded a drop of 4% overall, with European scheduled traffic down 8.6%.

In Scotland, Edinburgh traffic was 2.9% lower and Aberdeen saw a 4.2% drop in passengers. The largest drop was at Glasgow (–11%) where the loss of XL and Zoom services exacerbated already weak Charter and North Atlantic results. In contrast its European scheduled traffic was 3.7% up on last year.

In total BAA’s airports recorded a 1.3% drop in air transport movements during September and a 2.3% reduction in air cargo tonnage. Despite the overall loss of cargo traffic, both Heathrow (+2.5%) and Stansted (+3.8%) recorded increases.
