Edinburgh Airport has today announced the latest passenger numbers showing 1,141,823 people passed through the airport last month, making it the busiest April ever, up 13% from April 2016.



The greatest increase was in International passenger numbers: up to 705,683 this year – which represents a leap of 20.4% from the same month last year.

Welcoming April’s passenger figures Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive, said: “These record breaking passenger figures’ for April underline Edinburgh Airport’s ongoing success and very welcome indeed.

“Our expansion of routes and destinations is good news for travellers and it also creates new jobs, opportunities and offers greater international links for people in this city and for all of Scotland.

“With growth comes an increase in demand; it is vital that we are able to deliver a successful Airspace Change Programme to modernise the infrastructure in the sky. To this end I thank everyone who responded to the recent public consultation on this matter.”
