GLASGOW Airport reported its busiest May on record after more than 910,000 passengers travelled through its doors during the month, representing an increase of 10% on the same period last year.
International and domestic routes were up 16.5% and 2% respectively thanks to additional capacity from a number of airlines including Thomson and Thomas Cook.
There was strong demand for the airport’s growing list of European city destinations including Eurowings’ Dusseldorf route and Ryanair services to Brussels, Sofia and Valencia.
Ryanair’s recently launched Lisbon route performed particularly well as hundreds of Celtic fans made their way to the Portuguese capital to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the club’s historic 1967 European Cup win.
May also saw the airport’s long-haul services up by 15% thanks to an increase in demand for North American flights including Florida and Emirates’ double daily service to Dubai, while easyJet’s Bristol services and Loganair’s Highland and Island routes helped boost domestic travel.
