Isle of Man Airport April 2006 Passenger Figures 4 May 2006

AIRPORT DIRECTOR'S COMMENTS

This was an all-time record April, albeit with modest growth of 0.7% on top of April 2005.

A good month was expected, with the Easter celebration falling entirely in April this year, but when March and April are taken together and compared with last year, passenger numbers have fallen by some 5%.

The largest loss in numbers continues to be on the Liverpool route,followed by Stansted (discontinued), Glasgow, Leeds (discontinued), and Southampton. There has been good growth this month to Luton, Gatwick and Manchester which shows that the "core business" remains healthy.

The percentage of total passengers carried by each airline changed again to become, Euromanx 33.4%; BA Connect 32.5%; Aer Arann 14.8%; Eastern Airways 6.1%; Flybe 4.9%; Loganair (BA) 2.9%; British Northwest 2.5%; VLM 1%; and Blue Islands (new start during month) 0.2%.

A full breakdown of the figures can be found below.
