October 2014 passengers at Birmingham Airport‏‏‏‏‏‏‏

Birmingham Airport handled 878,689 passengers during October 2014
- an increase of 5.8% on the previous year

Another solid result and while not a "record month" the airport remains
on track for a record year for the first time since 2008....

.... indeed because of the number of new flybe routes that have been added
for the winter schedule together with the continuation of many that started
during the summer both November and December should be record months

Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport CEO said: "We’ve seen more and more passengers
choose Birmingham Airport this summer, breaking records along the way, so it’s
only fitting we end the season with another really strong performance"

"This summer has raised the bar for next year and we’re confident we can rise
to that challenge. Not only are we seeing many airlines increasing frequencies
and operating bigger aircraft that have more seats for next summer, but recently
we announced two key new routes to New York JFK with American Airlines and
Barcelona with Vueling, both starting in summer 2015"

Paul added: "We’ll look to build on what has been a fantastic summer, as we
enter an equally challenging winter period, supported with new routes to Berlin,
Oslo and Hamburg with Flybe, as well as extended services to Cologne, Toulouse,
Bordeaux, Florence, Oporto and Reykjavik"

While, as a result of the recession, passengers numbers at Birmingham Airport
have hovered around 9 million since 2008 it really does look if they will break
through 10 million for the first time in 2015 - and with some style!
During October significant growth was achieved
on scheduled flights to destinations such as -
Barcelona 76.7%, Hannover 76.5%, Stuttgart 70.4%,
Milan 68.8%, Jersey 64.3%, Tenerife 36.5%,
Lyon 36.3%, Copenhagen 31.4%, Dublin 24.8%,
Paris 8.0%, Dubai 4.9% and Istanbul 1.5%

Charter traffic which experience growth included -
Jamaica 37.9%, Italy 25.3 and Mexico 23.8%
Scheduled traffic accounted for 83.8% of the total
passenger traffic in October whilst charter
passengers made up the remaining 16.4%
