Following a bumper spring, Heathrow continued its spate of record-breaking months in June.
June 2011 was the busiest on record, as were the months of March, April and May.
Some 6.1 million passengers travelled through Heathrow last month, representing an underlying growth of 3.8% on last year.
The actual growth rate was 6.3%, but June 2010’s figures were skewed by industrial action at British Airways.
According to Colin Matthews, BAA’s CEO, Heathrow’s strong figures were driven by long-haul traffic and “strengthening transfer performance”.
“Heathrow’s position as the UK’s only hub airport enables it to benefit from growth in long-haul routes and emerging economies,” he said.
“June’s passenger figures are an early indication of a busy summer, and we will focus on delivering the best possible service standards at our most popular time of year.”
Of the long-haul destinations, Brazil led the charge with a 65.4% growth in passengers over June 2010.
BAA’s Scottish airports also saw an increase in passenger numbers in June; Aberdeen Airport saw a rise of 10% on June 2010, Edinburgh 7.6% and Glasgow 2.6%.
Stansted and Southampton airports, however, saw a fall in passenger numbers of 3.3% and 0.8% respectively year on year.
