New figures show a continued downward trend in the number of people travelling to and from Ronaldsway through October.

During the month around 1,300 fewer passengers passed through compared to the same time last year - representing a drop of two per cent.

It was the seventh consecutive drop with 13,300 fewer passengers using the airport compared with April to October in 2011.
