Latest figures reveal 654,683 travellers passed through the airport in March, a month which also experienced a 13% increase in passengers flying on long-haul services from Birmingham.
Scheduled routes that saw the biggest increase last month include Gibraltar (+182.1%), Fuerteventura (+95.3), Stuttgart (+78.6%) and Arrecife (+75.3). Charter services to Turkey (+273.6) and Barbados (+83%) also experienced significant growth.
Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport’s CEO, said: “March has been another great month for us and continues the upward trend that we have seen in recent months, where more and more passengers are choosing to fly from Birmingham.
“These passenger figures mean we enter the summer season in a good position and hope to build on this success. The completion of the runway extension and the introduction of nine new routes to Florence, Cologne, Porto, Toulouse, Alicante, Palma Mallorca, Bordeaux, Ibiza and Reykjavik with Flybe in particular, show there are exciting times ahead for Birmingham Airport.”
