Edinburgh Airport enjoys busiest April on record

Edinburgh Airport had its busiest April ever last month with the number of passengers travelling through the terminal rising by more 10% on last year.

In total 928,329 people landed and departed from the airport in April.

Domestic passenger numbers rose by 11.2% with 432,820 passengers travelling through the terminal.

International passenger traffic also rose significantly with an increase of 9.4% on April 2014.

London services helped drive the rise in domestic passenger traffic with Ryanair flying to Stansted up to four times per day and Flybe flying to London City up to six times per day.

The BA Cityflyer’s London City service, now flying up to 12 times daily, also boosted last month’s passenger numbers.

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, said: “Our passenger numbers have continued to rise each month of 2015 and last month was our busiest April on record.

“We’ve seen strong performances on both domestic and international routes with London doing particularly well.”

He added: “We know that over the last few months there have been incidents where our security process has taken longer than we would like.

“We’ve been working hard to resolve this and our analysis has shown that by being prepared means passengers will be able to pass through security in the quickest time possible.”
