Edinburgh Airport has its busiest May

Posted 25 June 2019 · Add Comment

A total of 1,381,187 passengers travelled through Edinburgh Airport last month making it the busiest May on record.



Numbers were 4.3% up on the same month last year with new route growth over the past year and increased capacity on existing routes aiding the rise.
   
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “Growth is always good as it shows a thirst for travel to and from Scotland, be that for leisure or business purposes, and our increased connectivity allows us to offer that choice to passengers. And as we come into the summer season, we hope the breadth of destination and trip that is available at Edinburgh brings even more people through our doors.

“We do, however, remain cautious as airlines plan their winter and summer schedules for next year and look at new and existing routes as well as capacity on those routes. We strive to keep Edinburgh as attractive as possible and hope to maintain steady numbers despite other contributing factors.”
