Storms boost airport figures for September

Wed, 12 Oct 2011

Passenger numbers continued to grow at the Isle of Man Airport during September.

Last month, an extra 864 people, or 1.36%, passed through Ronaldsway compared with the same month last year.

It's the sixth month in a row that there has been an increase.

An extra 2000 passengers travelled on the Liverpool route, whilst Southampton also saw significant growth.

However, the London City, Manchester and Dublin routes all saw passenger numbers drop.

Airport bosses have welcomed the figures, but believe the numbers were boosted by storms forcing sailings to be cancelled on a number of days in September.
