A total of 1,000,246 passengers passed through Edinburgh Airport in November 2019, a decrease of 4.3% on the same month last year.
Despite growth being recorded in the in international market, the withdrawal of the Stansted service and airlines reducing services during the winter season has impacted on passenger numbers.
% vs Last Year
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:
“We’re on course for another record year at Edinburgh Airport and we welcome that but there’s always a disappointment that we haven’t been able to share Edinburgh and Scotland with more tourists.
“The end of one of our most popular domestic routes has clearly had an impact and the winter season always sees a small reduction in services so these numbers are not unexpected, but it does show that the industry requires support to address the connectivity deficit that Scotland has.”
