August 2013 passengers at Birmingham Airport

 Birmingham Airport handled 1,049,878 passengers during August 2013 
- an increase of 1.8% on the previous year

Another excellent result - and the second highest monthly total in the
Airport's history - August 2008 at 1,080,278 still holds the record for 
monthly passengers numbers at BHX

While the percentage increase may not seem high it follows the 9.1% increase
achieved in August 2012 when bmibaby - who closed down in September 2012 -
still had four Boeing 737's based while Monarch had added two leased Boeing
737's to operate similar routes for the peak season so there was a one off benefit
in last year's numbers that has now been successfully retained in the current year

August of course saw the start of the new 4 times weekly Air India Boeing 787-8
"dreamliner" service from Amritsar and Delhi and this has got off to an encouraging
start while Emirates, who have many onward connecting services to India and East
Asia achieved an increase of 15.4% despite the added competition in this market

The Turkish Airlines service to Istanbul that has recently increased to 10 flights
weekly was up 26.0%, Dublin was up 11.4% benefiting from the additional
Aer Lingus flights while Monarch continued to consolidated their leading
position in the leisure market from Birmingham Airport

During August significant growth was achieved 
on scheduled flights to destinations such as - 
Barcelona 80.0%, Waterford 71.6%,  Stuttgart 55.4%,
Guernsey 42.9%, Brest 26.1%, Istanbul 26.0%,
Londonderry 20.7%, Amsterdam 19.7% and Dubai 15.4%

Charter traffic which experience growth included -
Malta 132.4%, Austria 75.2% and Croatia 46.7%

Scheduled traffic accounted for 75.4% of the total passenger traffic
in August whilst charter passengers made up the remaining 24.6%
