Birmingham airport hits passenger traffic milestone

Birmingham airport has broken the 12 million annual passenger mark for the first time in its history.

The record was hit on Easter Monday which represents a 14.3 per cent increase in passenger numbers year-on-year over the rolling 12 month period.

The airport has recorded 25 months of consecutive record passenger growth.

Birmingham airport’s CEO, Paul Kehoe, said: “We’re proud to have served 12 million people since last April as we continue our journey of growth and I would like to thank of all our passengers, partners and employees for making this happen.

“We will continue to invest in our facilities to improve the customer experience and keep working hard to attract new airlines that offer exciting destinations to enable the Midlands economy to grow and tourists to explore.”

Over the last year, the airport has welcomed a number of new airlines, including Jet2, Iberia Express, CSA, Alba Star, Cobalt and Bmi Regional.
