During July, Birmingham Airport handled 928,283 travellers through its two terminals, including 664,311 scheduled passengers and 263,972 charter passengers.

Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Given the fragile nature of the current economic recovery it is perhaps unsurprising that passenger numbers during July were down 4.2% year-on-year. However, Birmingham Airport continues to fare better than a number of other UK airports and the momentum continues to build for Birmingham to be seen as a viable alternative for airports in the over-heated south east.

“Having recently been voted the UK’s top airport by passengers, we want people who may not have used the airport before to come and see just how good we are for themselves!”

During July significant growth was achieved on scheduled flights to destinations such as Arrecife (+144.2%), Tehran (+99.5%), Tenerife (+75.1%), Ibiza (+63.6%), Bydgoszcz (+60.6%), Gerona (+58.4%), Toulouse (+43.2%), Milan (+37.5%), Cork (+35.2%), Faro (+34%), Bergerac (+30.1%), Lyon (+28.5%), Brest (+27.1%), Split (+26.2%), Hamburg (+24.4%), Dusseldorf (+24.1%), Stuttgart (+23.6%), Larnaca (+23.2%), Frankfurt (+19.9%), Toronto (+19.8%), Bratislava (+18.7%), Hanover (+16.7%), Dubai (+15.4%), Zurich (+14.7%), Guernsey (+11.9%), Islamabad (+11.7%) and Munich (+11.1%).
