Glasgow Airport reports passenger growth for February 2013
11 March 2013
More than 423,000 people travelled through Glasgow Airport in February, representing year-on-year growth of 2.1% after adjusting for 2012 being a leap year.
Growth in February was driven by domestic services and the demand for travel to London in particular, while international traffic was in line with 2012.
Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: "It is encouraging that our passenger numbers showed modest growth in February which was largely due to the strength of our domestic services.
"February was a busy month in terms of route development with Air Malta confirming it will introduce a new weekly service in May and the first Wizz Air flights to Gdansk and Warsaw have now been launched.
"We also unveiled details of an additional £10 million of investment for 2013, on top of an already planned £7 million, to improve our passenger-facing facilities ahead of next year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
"We are now looking forward to the commencement of the busy summer schedule in April as well as Lufthansa’s inaugural flight to Düsseldorf on Monday 8 April."
