Birmingham Airport broke through the 12 million passenger mark for the first time recently. On Easter Monday the record was hit when 12.004, 124 passengers were recorded travelling over the last 12 months. This represents a 14.3% increase in passenger numbers year on year over the rolling 12-month period.
The airport has recorded an impressive 25 months of consecutive record passenger growth as it continues to attract more airlines, routes and passengers. New airlines that the airport has attracted include Jet2, Iberia Express and BMI Regional and later this year will see FlyOne joining the ranks and British Airways returning to Birmingham.
Chief Executive Paul Kehoe said, “We’re proud to have served 12 million people since last April as we continue our journey of growth. 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.”
