Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 11 May 2010

BAA's passenger traffic in April 2010 was down 22.7% on the same month last year, due to the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud which closed UK airspace for several days.

For the month as a whole BAA's UK airports handled a total of 6.9 million passengers.

In total, the group recorded a decrease of 21% in the number of air transport movements handled, with all airports reporting falls of between 15 and 25%.

 Reflecting the current underlying strength of the air cargo business, cargo tonnage in April was up by 6.2% on last year, despite the disruption.
