Southampton Passenger Numbers on the Rise

Likes (0)


More than half a million passengers travelled through the regional Southampton Airport, UK, during May to July.

The 5.5% year-on-year increase is the airport’s largest growth rate since 2008.

Managing Director Dave Lees commented:  “We’ve seen some very positive trends recently as passenger numbers steadily rise.

“A combination of increased flights to some of our popular sun routes, some competitive pricing and offers from our airlines and tour operators, and the long, cold winter may all have contributed to the increase in holidays.”

Summer sun routes are proving especially popular as Malaga, Alicante, Faro and Palma show the biggest increases in passenger numbers, whilst Jersey and Alderney are also enjoying an upward trend.  City break destinations, such as Amsterdam, Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Paris are also increasingly popular destinations.
