Heathrow booked a record September as over 6.3 million passengers passed through its terminals last month, the airports operator BAA said yesterday.

Numbers were up 1.4 per cent on the previous year and took the total since the start of 2011 to nearly 53 million. Stansted, however, saw a 4 per cent fall in passenger numbers to 1.7 million as a result of planned cuts in services, BAA said.

In Scotland, Edinburgh airport reported a 3 per cent rise and Glasgow saw a 3.2 per cent rise in passengers over September. Overall, the group, which also runs airports in Southampton and Aberdeen, increased passenger numbers 1 per cent to more than 10 million.
