Edinburgh Airport, UK, had more than one million people pass through its doors in March 2019, making it the first ever one million passenger March for the terminal.

A total of 1,106,998 people used the airport, up 14.8% on the same month last year, with growth in both the domestic and international markets. The growth is also helped when compared to disruption caused by last year’s ‘Beast from the East’ snowstorms.

 

Mar 2019 % vs Mar 2018
Domestic 459,494 +18.2%
International 647,504 +12.5%
Total 1,106,998 +14.8%
MAT 14,629,214 +8.2%

 

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “To get our first ever million passenger March is another milestone for us and shows our variety of destination and types of holidays and trips are really providing for our passengers. “While these figures are good, we always need to look ahead and consider what is on the horizon and uncertainty caused by Brexit, the expensive aviation tax we face and the impact it has on our airlines. We will continue to work to mitigate and manage those things as best possible and for the benefit of our passengers.”
