Isle of Man Airport June 2006 Air Passenger Figures 3 July 2006

AIRPORT DIRECTOR'S COMMENTS

There was a modest 2.7% fall in passenger numbers this June, but it was still the second best June total ever (compared to June 2005 which recorded a 10.8% increase).

The Luton route saw the largest increase in passenger numbers (plus 3,374), followed by Manchester (plus 2,531); and Gatwick (plus 1,076). Liverpool recorded the largest decrease of minus 4,015 reflecting Aer Arann's withdrawal from the route during the month.

The proportions of total passengers flown by each airline changed again, with BA Connect taking the lead with 33.3%; followed by Euromanx 32.5%; Aer Arann 12.1%; Eastern 6.2%; Flybe 4.6%; Loganair (BA) 3.9%; British North West 2.6%; VLM 1.2%; Blue Islands 0.6%; and charter flights 2.9%.

Also of note, is the massive decrease in airfreight carried, down from 165 tonnes to 15 tonnes (minus 91%) due to the cessation of the daily Emerald Airways freight service. Strenuous efforts continue to find a replacement for this service, which was an important facility for certain contract customers on the Island.
