UK’s BAA reports (10-Sep-09) the following traffic highlights in Aug-2009:

  • Passenger Numbers: 14.4 million, -3.1% year-on-year;

  • Aircraft movements: 108,604, -5.2%;

    • Gatwick: 25,031, -3.5%;

BAA: “Heathrow’s traffic performance in July and August was good. The airport benefits from being the hub of a strong international route network, which is important both socially and economically…However, industry conditions remain difficult.  A continuation of the improving trend at Heathrow depends on business travellers re-establishing face-to-face contact with global markets," Colin Matthews, BAA’s Chief executive, Source: BAA, 10-Sep-2009.
