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.
