Birmingham Airport records busiest month in its history

Birmingham Airport in England’s West Midlands region recorded the busiest month in the airport’s history in August 2016 after serving a total of 1,285,911 passengers, up by 13% compared with the same month last year.

The airport also recorded its busiest ever day on August 26, 2016, when a total of 45,906 passengers passed through the terminal. Both long-haul and short-haul traffic saw significant passenger growth, with long haul up by 17.2% and short haul up by 12.5% year on year.

Paul Kehoe, CEO at Birmingham Airport, said, “August was not only our busiest ever month but it was also the fourth consecutive month this year in which we’ve recorded over a million passengers. It’s also our 18th consecutive month of record-breaking growth, demonstrating that travelers are taking advantage of Birmingham Airport’s ease of access and choice of flights.

“September is expected to also be a busy month as we welcome back business travelers after the summer holidays, and those choosing to go on holiday outside of the school holiday period. We look forward to welcoming these passengers as we enter the autumn travel period.”

Scheduled traffic accounted for 87% of the total passenger volume for August and saw a 25.3% growth compared with the same month last year. Charter traffic accounted for 13% of the total. Destinations that saw the greatest year-on-year growth were those in the Caribbean, Middle East, Africa and Europe.
