Edinburgh Airport announces major post-covid update with staggering new figures

By Alexander Smail

Edinburgh Airport has revealed that it saw a major surge in visitors in April, marking the busiest month since summer 2019, before the pandemic.

According to the airport, it saw 16 years of growth in four months, with overall passenger numbers rising from 317,011 in January to 931,522 last month.

It also revealed that the last time that it had seen a month as quiet as January was back in 1999, with Omicron and restrictions leading people to stay at home rather than travel.

With people around the country preparing to jet off for some summer sun, it is likely the number of visitors will grow even further in the coming months.

Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport Gordon Dewar said: “It was brilliant to welcome passengers back to the airport and see so many happy faces as people set off to reunite with family and friends, take long awaited honeymoons and family holidays or just enjoy some time to themselves - these big days have been missing for far too long.

“It was of course a challenging few weeks and we are quite happy with the way the airport operation performed as it saw its busiest period in almost three years.

"A big thank you must go to our workforce and others across the campus who welcomed and greeted that challenge with gusto, and to our passengers who worked with us to prepare for their trip and showed patience and understanding throughout."

He added: “As ever there are lessons we can learn and improvements we can make as we head into the even busier summer season.

"We would like to remind passengers that we will face some challenges and again ask them to continue to work with us by planning ahead and ensuring they know what they need to do before they get here, and we will continue to do everything we can to get through the airport quickly and comfortably.”
