Manchester Airport leads MAG to successful 2017

Heathrow’s annual noise and contour report revealed noise footprint was at its smallest recorded level in 11 years. Night time jet movements also decreased by 32

Gatwick Airport rounded off a trio of records for London airports, announcing today it welcomed 45.6m passengers previous year.

The popularity of long-haul routes to Beijing, Singapore, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Houston, combined with continued strong demand for summer destinations in Spain, Greece and the Canary Islands saw the airport set itself a new traffic record.

The traveler tally at the home base of British Airways increased 3.1 percent to 78 million, even as the number of aircraft movements rose just 0.2 percent, Heathrow Airport Ltd. said in a news statement issued on Thursday. Gatwick's long-haul network grew to 63 connections past year, with 7.3m people opting to fly long-haul, up almost a million on 2016. North America is the second largest market for the London airport, with 17.35 million passengers. The airport is owned and operated by AGS Airports, which also owns and operates Aberdeen airport.

The airport's long-haul network grew to 63 connections in 2017, and Gatwick welcomed 7.3 million long-haul passengers across the year - an increase of nearly one million compared with 2016.

MAG as a whole grew 7.3 per cent year on year on a "like for like" basis, excluding figures for Bournemouth Airport which was sold in December 2017.

As the United Kingdom prepares to exit the European Union, Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said the recorded customer tally shows the airport is "helping to strengthen the British economy as the country seeks to redefine its role in the world".

"This excellent addition to our route network comes on top of the very exciting news that Primera Air will also launch direct flights to New York, Boston and Toronto from April and May this year". This will be done while continuing to deliver the best passenger experience, which is at the heart of everything we do at Gatwick.
