May 2009 passenger figures

US Airways launched their new service to Philadelphia
Birmingham International Airport handled 831,738 passengers
during May 2009 - a fall of 5.2% on the previous year

Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport’s Chief Executive Officer,

and airports alike react to the recessional forces"
.
"However, despite these tough times May saw the launch
of US Airways’ five-weekly service to Philadelphia, which
represents both a new route and a new airline for
Birmingham. The Airport will continue to work with our
partners to provide choice and value for money, to help
make these difficult times a little easier for Midlands
business and leisure travellers"
.
During May significant growth was achieved on
scheduled flights to destinations including -
Ercan (+134.4%), Larnaca (+133.8%), Krakow (+125.2%),
