Edinburgh Airport records busiest month ever at a Scottish airport

Edinburgh Airport recorded the busiest month ever at a Scottish airport after serving 1,332,282 passengers in July 2016, a 9.6% increase on the same month last year.

Analysis has also shown that passenger numbers grew by 10% in the first six months of the year at the airport, more than double the European average.

Gordon Dewar, CEO, Edinburgh Airport, said, “We are greatly encouraged to have smashed another record at Edinburgh Airport, with July being the busiest ever passenger month ever at a Scottish airport.

“While we welcome this growth, it underlines the work we are doing at Edinburgh Airport to adapt and accommodate the ever increasing number of people wanting to fly in and out of Scotland’s capital city.

“The trend of expanding international passengers continues, and with a growing proportion of inbound passengers, we are helping drive tourism, economic development and additional job creation in Scotland.

“Despite our encouraging growth there is evidence of damage to the aviation business that has followed the Brexit vote – this further highlights the need to reduce air passenger duty (APD) as soon as possible,” added Dewar.

“Cutting APD will be a strong demonstration of Scotland’s international ambitions. It will send a powerful signal to the global airline market that Scotland is most definitely open for business, and would go some way to counter the negative business impact of the UK’s plans to leave the EU.”
