Passenger figures in September reflected another month of growth, welcoming over 178,681 passengers, which represents an increase of 7% compared to the same month last year.
Over the last 12 months more than 1.56 million customers have flown to and from Cardiff, making use of the Airport as a point of departure and a key gateway to the UK.
As we move into the winter season, Cardiff Airport is reflecting on a number of exciting developments, including:
Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, said:
“As we wrap up the busiest summer in ten years and look forward to the next season of flying, it’s promising to see passenger figures continuing to grow.
“Our airlines, like Flybe for example, are continuing to respond to this contagious confidence by adding more and more capacity to popular routes like Glasgow, Edinburgh and Paris.
“With strong monthly results such as September’s 7% increase and 8% passenger growth for the rolling 12 months, we are well on track to deliver the double digit growth projected at the beginning of the year.
“Our work continues to deliver a sustainable airport business which encompasses a diverse portfolio of products and services, but, more than anything, we are passionate about flying the flag for Wales and proudly acting as a key gateway to the UK for international visitors.”
