BAA traffic commentary, November 2009

BAA has issued figures that show that traffic at all its UK airports rose 0.8% in November, the first net monthly increase since March 2008.  BAA’s UK airports handled a total of 9.9m passengers in November.  More significantly it marked the first time since March 2008 that BAA’s airports have recorded a collective increase, and follows a six-month run of gradually improving results.  Heathrow’s continued resilience is highlighted by the fourth monthly increase in the last five months, a far better performance than competing continental airports.  Gatwick marked its last full month under BAA ownership with a 4.5% increase, while Edinburgh was again up, 1.3% on last November.  Stansted is still suffering (down 2.7%) and likewise Glasgow with a loss of 4.7% passengers in November. www.baa.com
