Manchester airport broke its passenger traffic record last month, helped by a significant rise in long-haul traffic.
The north west airport saw a 6.2 per cent year-on-year increase in passengers last month, compared to the same period last year.
Around 1.4 million people travelled through the airport in November.This growth has raised the annual total of passengers to more than 23 million – an increase of 5 per cent for the same 12-month period year-on-year.Scheduled international flights were up 14.5 per cent on November last year.Manchester airport MD Ken O’Toole: “November was an extremely successful and significant month for Manchester Airport as we broke the 23 million barrier and continued to announce new long and short-haul services.“We are preparing for our busiest ever December, with the Christmas holiday period already looking very promising. We continue to recruit additional staff to ensure we can cope with the increased demand and capacity.“Furthermore, looking forward to 2016 we will see new routes begin to Los Angeles, Boston and Beijing, all of which are services not available at any other UK airport outside of London.”
