Its congratulations from Car Hire Birmingham Airport on reaching a new record for passenger numbers at the airport they serve.
The best April has been recorded in Birmingham Airport history, with over 758,000 passengers travelling through the terminal during the forth month of the year. It also saw an increase on long-haul services from Birmingham Airport, up by 20.9 per cent on last years figures.
Birmingham Airport chief executive Paul Kehoe said, “To record the busiest April in our history is a tremendous achievement. It demonstrates the strong demand that exists for flights to and from Birmingham and the progress we have made over the past 12 months in particular. A strong performance in April is the perfect way to enter the summer season, a period which will also see Birmingham become the first UK airport outside of London to offer direct charter flights to China, as well as new flights starting to Porto, Cologne, Florence, Ibiza, Malta and Athens, among others.”
Birmingham Airport is currently the third largest in the UK outside London and the seventh largest overall, handling around nine million passengers a year. Some of the biggest increases on routes included Jersey, Fuerteventura, Stuttgart and Arrecife.
