SOUTHAMPTON AIRPORT has had its busiest July in seven years.
More than 192,350 passengers travelled through the airport in July, a 1.9% increase on July last year and the largest number since 2007.
The top five summer sun destinations from Southampton were Malaga, Alicante, Palma, Faro, and Bergerac. Flights to Guernsey also proved to be popular, with 5,000 more passengers flying there compared to July last year.
Jan Halliday, director of Marketing & Communications, said: ‘Passenger numbers this July have been similar to pre-recession levels.’
The airport is gearing up for a busy autumn, with new flights to Hamburg and additional services to Leeds Bradford and Aberdeen starting at the end of October.
