Scotland’s Glasgow Airport has reported its busiest July in five years – with over 832,000 passengers going through the terminal.
The increase represents a year-on-year upturn of 5.4%.
Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: “The summer season is always a busy time for the airport but there has been a marked increase in the number of people choosing to fly from Glasgow over the course of the past two months.
The airport also had an international traffic increase of around 3.7% – with US Airways starting direct flights to America and Emirates commencing a twice daily service to Dubai. Domestic traffic grew by a huge 8% on the back of British Airways’ London service and Flybe’s UK services.
“We have enjoyed consistent passenger growth since January 2011 which underlines the progress we are making in terms of securing new routes and services,” continued McMillan. “It is particularly pleasing to see our domestic traffic perform so well and with Glasgow hosting events such as the World Pipe Band Championships and UDO World Street Dancing Championship, we are looking forward to a busy August.”
