Glasgow Airport records busiest September in its history

Glasgow Airport in Scotland has recorded its busiest September in 50 years after 934,295 passengers traveled through its doors, representing an annual increase of 4.2%.

Domestic and international traffic grew by 4.2% and 4.3% respectively with major events, such as the Davis Cup tennis competition and Celtic FC soccer club’s participation in the Champions League proving big draws for visitors to the city.

Strong demand for Ryanair’s service to Derry and extra capacity on EasyJet’s Bristol and Belfast services bolstered domestic travel. International passenger numbers were also boosted by a 12% rise in EU scheduled services with flights to Brussels, Paris, Milan and Barcelona all proving popular.

September also saw the launch of Ryanair’s new direct flights to Sofia in Bulgaria, and Icelandair added further capacity by increasing its Reykjavik route to a daily service.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said, “Our strong performance throughout the year continued in September, which was also the fourth consecutive month the airport carried more than 900,000 passengers.

“We are on course to record our most successful year and this success can be attributed to our continued focus on not only attracting new services, but working closely with our current airlines to enhance existing services.

“Looking ahead, we are now gearing up for the October week, which is traditionally our busiest period of the year as tens of thousands of passengers jet off on both sun and ski breaks.

“October will see Ryanair launch four new routes to Alicante, Malaga, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, and the introduction of Thomson’s new Cape Verde service.”
