Aberdeen Airport has released figures showing that its international services carried two per cent more passengers in May this year than in the same month of 2007.
The total number of passengers travelling through Aberdeen in May – just under 300,000 – brought the airport’s traffic figures for the year so far to 1.3 million.
Routes to Stavanger from Aberdeen saw a year-on-year increase of 5.4 per cent in passenger numbers, despite some cancellations and other disruptions.
The most popular international destination of all was Amsterdam, followed by Stavanger and Paris. Flights to Copenhagen saw a 24.4 per cent increase in fliers in May.
This year has so far been a good one for Aberdeen, as it received the ‘best improvement’ award from the Airports Council International in February.
Managing director Kevin Brown said: "We are working to ensure passenger growth is matched by investment in our facilities and major projects continue.
"Developments involving the international arrivals area are on schedule this year as we continue to upgrade the world’s most improved airport."
