Published on : Thursday, December 27, 2018

Edinburgh Airport has recorded its busiest ever June with almost 1.4 million passengers passing through the airport last month.

 

 

A total of 1,391,906 people came through Scotland’s busiest airport, up 6.7% on the same month last year.

 

 

International passengers saw an almost 11% rise thanks to the launch of 24 new routes since last June.

2018 Jun % vs Last Year
Domestic 479,041 -0.3%
International 912,865 10.9%
Total 1,391,906 6.7%
MAT 13,764,767 6.6%

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:

 

 

“The summer months see the airport at its busiest with schools breaking up and families heading away for that sunshine and relaxation, and those holidays have helped us record our busiest ever June.

 

 

“The surge in international passengers reflects the continued growth in our international routes and we’ve seen strong starts to both our Washington D.C. and Beijing routes, while traditional beach destinations like Alicante, Tenerife and Palma have also proven to be popular.

 

 

“We make every day a big day for passengers and we want to see that continue by providing more choice for them to get away and have that trip of a lifetime, that weekend break or family visit.”
