Is this a sign of lower economic activity in the UK and lower air travel?
|Quoting TC957 (Reply 6):|
That would be a contributing factor for sure, but I wonder if VS operating smaller aircraft is also a factor ? ( 789's instead of 744's )
|Quoting Bongodog1964 (Reply 12):|
BA are reporting RPK, whereas LHR are reporting total passenger numbers, but I'm not aware of BA making a huge change to their flight mix. RPK figures will always look better if short haul flights are replaced by long haul ones.

The May 2016 traffic data for FRA are just in and these show an even more dramatic results:
Frankfurt Airport - May 2016:
- Passengers 5.303.480 (-5.5%)

Agree fully, it should be whole cities that are counted.

Slightly off topic - but how does this compare to VGO and LCG?
|Quoting SCQ83 (Reply 21):|
AENA has released numbers for May. Not sure if it is a record May (I think so). Of the 16 airports with +200k monthly PAX, all of them are growing, and 13 with double-digit growth.
|Quoting Summa767 (Reply 24):|
I am sure that overall it is a record May. Not so for certain airports though: MAD and MJV had better record numbers before the financial crisis. But overall fantastic numbers.
But Spain is clearly undergoing a tourism boom -and that is clearly reflected in falling unemployment too.
With its fantastic infrastructure (High speed trains everywhere for one), great prospects ahead -I can see it a very attractive option for companies looking to set up shop in Europe -and more so after Brexit without the significant competition that the UK would have provided.

So far LHR (-0.8%), FRA (-5.5%), IST (-5.2%) and CDG (-1.1%) all report traffic down in May 2016.
|Quoting B747forever (Reply 27):|
It is really interesting to see how traffic increases at Scandinavian airports and AMS while all those major hubs are decreasing. I am sure some of it is due to DYs massive long haul growth at ARN/OSL/CPH. Instead of flying over all those hubs, now more than ever before Scandinavian pax can reach a lot of long haul destinations nonstop.
126 weekly flights
The airline has also launched its summer 2016 schedule, which includes 15 routes, including a new route to Oporto in Portugal, catering to some 2.5 million passengers.
Ryanair’s summer schedule includes four daily flights to London; two daily flights to Brussels and Milan; one daily flight to Madrid, Malaga, Rome, Dublin, Cologne, Stockholm, Kaunas and Budapest; three weekly flights to Bologna and Oporto; four weekly flights to Edinburgh; and five weekly flights to Alicante.

CDG 5.7 million (-1,1%)
AMS 5.7 million (+6.7%)
Nice fact: The difference between AMS and CDG in the number of processed passengers is only 1422 pax; which is equivalent to less than three flights with an Airbus A380.
