Glasgow Airport still top, but passenger numbers fall
International travel is keeping Glasgow Airport as Scotland's biggest airhub over the last 12 months, but passengers fell in May compared to a year earlier. New passenger figures revealed yesterday showed that international travel direct from Glasgow triggered a 5.3% rise in passenger numbers during the past year.
International travel helped compensate for a drop in passengers on domestic flights - which were down 0.7% - and also helped airport bosses secure a combined passenger growth of 2.1% for the 12 months ending in May.
But Scotland's biggest and busiest airport suffered a set back last month. The figures show passenger numbers dropped 1.9% compared to May last year. Bosses blamed a 'flat domestic market, a smaller charter market and two bank holidays which resulted in less business traffic than normal'.
