Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 13 July 2009

BAA's UK airports handled a total of 12.7 million passengers in June 2009, a reduction of 5.9% on the same month last year.

Despite traffic volumes remaining in decline the June figures still represent the best underlying group result since September 2008.

 In June 2009, traffic volumes were at their highest for nine months, setting aside the distortion in April and March's figures due to the fact that Easter fell in April this year and in March in 2008.

Although all key markets were lower in June than a year earlier, all except the European Charter market improved on their performance for the last six months.

 Domestic traffic was 8.1% down in June and European Scheduled by 2.8%. North Atlantic traffic was 9.4% lower, but other long haul traffic was almost level with last year at -0.2%.

Of the individual airports, Heathrow recorded a decline of 3.1%, stronger than the other airports because of its hub status and the resultant growth in transfer passengers.

Gatwick was 7.6% down on last year, Stansted was 11.5% down and Southampton was 7.9% down.

For the third consecutive month, Edinburgh Airport (+1.4%) recorded growth, while Glasgow and Aberdeen recorded decreases of 10.9% and 9.8% respectively.

In total the number of air transport movements at BAA's UK airports was 6.3% lower in June. The decline in cargo activity continued but for the second month in succession there was a marked shrinkage in the rate of decrease. This had been 21.8% in April but was 13.7% in June.
