New record high at Edinburgh airport for february passenger numbers

Published on : Friday, March 10, 2017

edinburgh airport logoEdinburgh Airport has today announced February’s passenger numbers showing 811,804 people passed through the airport last month, making it the busiest February ever at a Scottish airport.

This 5.4 per cent increase, which includes a 13.6 % jump in international passengers, follows on from the recent confirmation that Edinburgh Airport is officially the UK’s fastest growing airport in terms of international passengers.

Welcoming February’s passenger figures Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive, said:“Once again our passenger numbers have broken a new record. This is further proof that the airport is continuing to service the growing demand for what is without doubt one of Europe’s leading cities.

“As we grow we deliver greater international connectivity for this city and for Scotland – and the benefits of our growth are felt well beyond this airport.

“The airport is engaged in the second stage of public consultation of an Airspace Change Programme which is focused on giving our neighbouring communities a say on how we grow while ensuring that we continue to support Scotland’s economy in a safe and effective way.

“And while our preferred options would reduce aircraft noise for 25,000 people – as with all major infrastructure expansion plans – we recognise that not everyone agrees with our proposals.“I actively encourage everyone in Edinburgh, the Lothians, Falkirk and Fife to look at our proposals and give their feedback to the consultation.”
