“August was a very busy month for the airport. Passenger numbers up 14.4%, with flights up 7.1%. The rolling year passenger numbers is now just short of breaking even, so fingers crossed for a busy September.
The majority of flights saw increases and high load factors. Many of the core routes show growth i.e. AMS, DUB, GLA, CDG. The Dusseldorf route had its busiest month so far with a load factor of 68% on a 78 seat aircraft (about 53 PAX per flight). Many holiday routes showed growth, many helped by Vueling. AGP saw huge growth with a 530% increase and a load factor of 87% across Thomson and Vueling. The individual LFs for Vueling were very strong and hopefully will remain high for the rest of the summer season.
Some routes saw decreases, again AYT and BJV are due to capacity cuts by TCX compared to last summer. The Funchal charter only had loads of 62%, 100 people, which is disappointing and may hinder further growth by Atlantic Holidays for 2014.”

The March stats are up on the WAF site. Click here to view.
Total passengers down 18% (mainly due to the 6 Nations). This does mean that CWL has officially passed the 1 million passenger barrier for a rolling year! This is sad news, however, hopefully this should pick back up by the end of the year.
The LFs for the first few VY rotations were 61% for BCN, 65% for ALC and 48% for AGP. However, this is expected at the start of the season with much of the traffic being one way. April will give us a better insight.
Jan 2013 stats are now available on the WAF site. Apologies for the delay, this was due to university commitments. The stats for Feb and March will be up on the site in the coming days. Click here to view.
