BAA recorded an increase of 3.0% increase in traffic on the same month last year and an improvement on the growth recorded in July and August.

Among key passenger markets, the North Atlantic returned to growth with an increase of 3.1% in September, while other long-haul routes recorded a collective increase of 8.6%. European scheduled traffic was up by 4.2%, but European charter traffic was again weak; in September it dipped 7.4%. UK Domestic activity was 2.3% ahead of last year's level.
Each of BAA's UK airports recorded growth in September, the fastest being the 18.5% increase at Southampton. Stansted's traffic was up by 5.0%, while Heathrow and Gatwick were up by 1.4% and 2.9% respectively. In Scotland the combination of a resurgence in oil industry activity and a major oil industry conference helped Aberdeen to a 10.0% increase in passengers. There were also gains of 6.9% at Edinburgh and 2.1% at Glasgow. In total the number of air transport movements was 3.6% up on last year.
