Bordeaux Airport played host to 304,080 passengers last month, an increase of 5.4% compared to February 2013. This is higher than the growth rate recorded by the airport for January, and compares very favourably with results of major French airports.
A glance at low cost airlines shows traffic figures continued to rise last month, by 17.5%.
Scheduled domestic traffic was up 3.1%. Results for routes to Paris were positive: Charles de Gaulle hub +4.2% and Orly +4.4%. Results for other domestic routes were slightly down, with the exception of Nice and Nantes which posted strong growth (up 9% and 37% respectively).
Scheduled international traffic boosted airport growth, registering an increase of 11.5%. Success for Southern Europe – an important area of development for Bordeaux – with Madrid (Iberia) up 16.3%, Lisbon (TAP) +11.1%, Rome (HOP! and Ryanair) increasing by 26.8% and Venice (Volotea) +58.7%. The same trends apply to the rest of Europe: Charleroi (Ryanair) was up 44.8%, figures for Geneva (easyJet) rose by 18.3%, Dublin (Aer Lingus) posted growth of 5.2% and London Luton (easyJet) was up by 4.9%. Results for the Amsterdam hub (Air France/KLM) jumped by 19.4% while those for London Gatwick (British Airways and easyJet) experienced a 15.8% decline, directly correlated to the decrease in seats offer.
The low-cost business maintained its contribution to positive results for scheduled traffic with an increase of 17.5% and nearly 94,900 registered passengers.
