The airport also reported (09-Aug-2013) a 6.8% year-on-year decline in transfer passengers, attributing the decline to Jet Airways' decision to discontinue several flights, which also resulted in declines in long-haul traffic. Short-haul traffic growth was mainly driven by LCCs. Brussels Airlines on the other hand reported a slight decline in short-haul traffic due to the rationalisation of its network.
