UK airport figures for BAA

BAA's six UK airports handled 10.6m passengers in August, a reduction of 0.6% on the same month last year.  Heathrow recorded its busiest ever August, and second busiest month on record, with 6.5m passing through the world’s major international hub.  Relative to other UK airports, Heathrow benefited from its greater exposure to the business travel sector with the main growth driver European scheduled traffic, which was up by 10.4% on the back of an 8.3% increase in seat capacity compared with August 2009.  All the airports showed a decrease both on a monthly and year to year basis with Stansted the worst in pure number terms, now less then 19m on an annual basis. www.baa.com
