Scottish air travellers have doubled over the last 15 years
Passengers travelling via Scotland's main airports have more than doubled over the past 15 years, benefiting from a rapid growth in the number of international flights, according to a study by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The report also found that fewer Scottish travellers are using London connections to access destinations in Europe and the United States.
The report shows that total passengers at the five largest airports in Scotland rose by 162% in the last 15 years as international scheduled routes increased from 10 to 45. Edinburgh Airport saw the biggest net growth over the period, from 2.5 to 8.6 million, while Glasgow saw passenger numbers grow from 4.3 to 8.8 million. The number of passengers using Prestwick grew by 2,421% from 95,000 to 2.4 million.
