January 2010 passenger figures

The new International Pier handled many diversions
Birmingham International Airport handled 521,566 passengers
during January 2010 - a fall of 7.2% on the previous year
Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport's Chief Executive Officer,
commented: "As expected 2010 has begun in much the same way
as 2009 concluded. The year-on-year decrease in passenger numbers
of 7.2% is still healthier than many other airports have reported, and
I feel that the Airport is better prepared for the turbulent economic
conditions that will face us,as opposed to 12 months ago."
"Last year saw the completion of a number of high-profile projects,
such as the new £50m International Pier, and investment will
continue in the shape of a new state-of-the-art
Airport Control Centre and the commencement of our £13m
One-Terminal project. It is this ambition that will position
Birmingham as well placed to take advantage of the economic
upturn, whether that arrives later this year or in 2011."
