Edinburgh Airport sees record March passenger numbers

Posted 12 April 2017 · Add Comment

Edinburgh Airport has today welcomed passenger numbers for March showing that over 965,000 people came through the airport last month, representing a 4.1% hike from the same month last year and the busiest March for a Scottish airport ever, with international passenger numbers performing particularly strongly.



Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive, said: “March’s passenger figures underline Edinburgh Airport’s growing international ambitions and ongoing demand to fly to and from this great city.

“We have seen another solid increase in the number of international passengers which highlights the ever-increasing draw of Edinburgh as a global destination. An increase in visitors to the city stimulates the economy, creates new jobs and offers direct international links for all of Scotland.

“As we move into the final few weeks of our public consultation on airspace change I would urge everyone in our neighbouring communities with a view on our preferred flightpath options to respond before our consultation closes on May 7.”
