March 2012 passenger figures at Birmingham

Birmingham Airport handled 631,603 passengers during
March 2012 - an increase of 1.5% on the previous year
March/April are always difficult months to comment
on because Easter is a moveable feast and while it
did not take place until early April this year some
benefit undoubtedly fell in March....
.... not least because of the number of new routes
and services that started during the final week of
March when the "summer" schedules started and most
of which seem to have made an encouraging start
Indeed April has got off to a good start with numbers
over Easter up 9% although the comparison for the
month with last year will be challenging because of
the extended holiday for the Royal wedding at the
end of April 2011
During March significant growth was achieved on
scheduled flights to destinations such as -
Mahon 145.7%, Fuerteventura 131.5%, Istanbul
Palma 84.5%, Reus 63.5%, Milan 47.7%,
Murcia 43.1%, Prague 40.3%, Grenoble 23.0%,
Nice 22.0%, Munich 20.1% and Hamburg 19.4%
Charter traffic which experience growth included -
Cyprus 62.4%, Italy 40.6% and Austria 39.8%
Scheduled traffic accounted for 85.7% of the total
passenger traffic in March whilst charter passengers
made up the remaining 14.3%
