Regional UK airport reports increased passenger numbers

Share

A regional airport in the UK has marked its third anniversary by revealing that is continuing to attract more air passengers.

Doncaster-based Robin Hood Airport said passenger numbers for last month were more than 12 per cent higher than they had been 12 months earlier.

Hugh Lang, a director at Peel Airports, praised the airport for this strong growth, describing the size of the increase as "something to be very proud of."

Services to Spain were found to be in particularly high demand last month, which could be due to the fact that Easter fell in March this year.

According to the Association of British Travel Agents, Spain was the "outright favourite" for Britons who chose to venture abroad during this period.

This verdict is reflected in Robin Hood Airport's list of the five most popular services in March.

Direct flights to Alicante occupied the top spot, while routes to Malaga and Tenerife were listed in fourth and fifth place.
