A record summer for BAA
Tuesday 15 September 1998
BAA's seven UK airports handled 11.5 million passengers in August, making it a record summer with the highest number of passengers ever recorded over a two-month period, it was announced yesterday.
The surge marks a 6.5 per cent increase on the same month last year and a 7.6 per cent increase in BAA's passenger traffic for the financial year to date, compared with the previous year's figures. BAA, whose chief executive is John Egan (left), also revealed a 6.8 per cent increase in passenger traffic for the 12 months to 31 August this year.
The fastest growth among the key markets in August was on European scheduled routes, where traffic increased by 9.2 per cent, and North Atlantic services, where the rise was 8.3 per cent.
