Malaga airport has seen a record number of passengers in its history during the first nine months of 2014. Not far off eleven million passengers arrived or departed in this period, 2.24% more than during the same period in 2007, which was, up to now, the busiest year for the airport.
During September, the airport recorded 1,481,500 passengers, up almost 5% when compared to September 2013. The airport recorded a total of 10,728 operations, up more than 4%. These results consolidate the sustained growth since May 2013, as AENA announced today in a statement.
September’s positive results are based on two main points, as both the domestic and the foreign market had thrived, though the recovery of air traffic between Spanish cities was more remarkable, with a growth of 9% in the number of passengers and over 11% more flights. International operations continued the progression that has been happening since last year and accounts for 80% of the traffic in this airport.
In fact, from the total number of commercial flight passengers that passed through the airport during September (1,476,884), a total of 1,281,404 flew international flights, which represents an increase of 4% in the number of passengers and 1.6% more movements.
