Bristol Airport has announced its busiest ever month this June.
It saw more than 646,000 passengers during the month, which equates to a rise in 3.34% compared this month with the same time last year.
Helping achieve such strong passenger numbers were the Aer Lingus Dublin service, which was used by over 8,000 passengers, as well as bmi’s services to Frankfurt and Munich.
The airport has made big investment over the last 12 months to improve services and facilities, which include a £6.5 million walk way and improved Departure Lounge facilities.
Speaking about the figures, Shaun Browne, Aviation Director at Bristol Airport, said, “The strong performance across all airline sectors is particularly encouraging, with business, leisure and inbound traffic all contributing to June’s record passenger numbers. New facilities are in place to ensure we maintain service levels as passenger numbers continue to grow, and we are already focusing on further improvements we can bring to the route network from Bristol.”
