Ba strike – airport numbers drop

It must be a slow news day when the obvious starts appearing in the travel news..

The British Airways cabin crew strike, which has led to a 1.7% drop in passenger traffic, came as a shock for BAA the owners of Heathrow.

The company, which also runs Stansted, Southampton Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, said that 9.5 million passengers flew from its UK airports in June – compared to 9.7 million in June 2009.

British Airways said last week that it carried around 11% fewer passengers in June compared to the previous year due to nine days of walkouts by cabin crew.

Traffic from Heathrow was unchanged at around 5.78 million but there was a drop of 5.2% at Stansted.

BAA sold Gatwick to Global Infrastructure Partners for £1.5 billion last year.
