The new International Pier is nearing completion
Birmingham International Airport handled 898,608 passengers
during June 2009 - a fall of 4.1% on the previous year
Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport’s Chief Executive Officer,
explains: "June’s figures, which represent a 4.1% fall, again
underline the tough conditions we find ourselves operating
under. Despite moving into what is peak season we continue
to see traffic down on the same period last year, in line with
the vast majority of airports, not just in the UK but around
"However, despite these tough times the Airport continues to
discuss a range of opportunities with prospective partners as
Birmingham clearly remains an Airport with a reputation for
offering choice and value for money for local business and leisure
