New figures out. Airlines too for February.
The Civil Aviation Authority has now published the airport statistics for March which show a dramatic fall in passenger throughput and actual aircraft movements. April will be even more dramatic.
In all UK airports the March numbers are down 59%, 9.1m as against 22.3m for 2019.
Taking London as an example Heathrow and Gatwick are level pegging in percentage change and there are no figures for either London City or Southend, both closed by the end of the month.
With the airlines the figures are expected to be published in a few days but with February, prior to the pandemic, British Airways carried 3.094m at a load factor of 67.4% (BA CityJet 197,000 at 61%), easyJet 2.95m at 89.9%, Virgin Atlantic 373,000 at 53.9%, TUI 474,000 at 69%.
BTN will publish the full March airline list when available.
