The national airport for Wales is continuing to perform strongly, and is well on track to achieve double digit passenger growth at the end of this year, having already welcomed 1m passengers* just eight months into 2018.
Figures show that at this point last year, Cardiff Airport had welcomed just over 935,000 passengers, representing a 7% increase in 2018.
Additionally, the month of July 2018 alone saw double digit growth, having welcomed 12% more passengers over the busy peak summer month.
At just over halfway through the year, Cardiff Airport has already seen many exciting announcements and developments, including:
Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, commented:
“At just over halfway through 2018, it’s promising to see such strong passenger figures. This summer, for example, is our busiest summer in a decade and we’re continuing to improve the experience for our passengers, with the launch of a new Meet & Greet parking service just recently.
“With strong monthly results such as July’s 12% increase and 8% passenger growth for the rolling 12 months, we are well on track to deliver the double digit growth projected at the beginning of the year.
“Our work continues to deliver a sustainable airport business which encompasses a diverse portfolio of products and services, but, more than anything, we are passionate about flying the flag for Wales and proudly acting as a key gateway to the UK for international visitors.”
