Glasgow Airport welcomed 579,888 passengers through its doors in January, representing a decrease of 3% on the same period last year.

EU-scheduled traffic was up 4.7% thanks to the popularity of a number of winter sun routes and an increase in capacity on city break destinations including Munich, Frankfurt, Madrid, Dusseldorf, Lisbon and Valencia.

International traffic was down 1.9% due to the suspension of United’s Newark winter route while adverse weather conditions also impacted services throughout the month.

Domestic traffic was down 4% on the same period last year due to the temporary suspension of Ryanair’s three-times daily Stansted service, however, regional traffic was up thanks to increased uptake on routes to Manchester and Southampton.
