Posted 11 October 2017 · Add Comment

The number of international passengers passing through Edinburgh Airport soared by 14.1% during the busiest September on record at the terminal.



A total of 1,291,640 passengers used Edinburgh Airport in September – up 8.4% on the same month last year.

It’s the sixth month in a row that more than one million passengers have passed through Edinburgh Airport.

International passengers continued the upward trend as services to Europe and further afield, such as New York, also proving popular.

Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport Gordon Dewar said: “The fact that international passengers are driving continued growth is an indication of the global appeal that Edinburgh and Scotland has – people want to say they’ve been here and experienced our culture, our history and all the other fantastic things we have to offer.

“It also shows that we have a variety of destinations that people want to go to, be that a weekend break in Geneva, a sightseeing trip to New York or a family holiday to Fuerteventura.

“And our domestic numbers remain strong, which highlights the healthy passenger mix that we have at Edinburgh Airport.

“We’re constantly looking to add more options for passengers, such as the new Washington DC route from next summer, and we’re investing in improved facilities for passengers so we can accommodate increasing demand.”
