The continued strong growth in international passengers at Edinburgh Airport helped tame the Beast from the East and the impact caused by the adverse weather it in March.

A total of 964,094 passengers passed through last month, flat on last year due to a number of delays and flight cancellations caused by severe snow at beginning of March.

Domestic passengers were most impacted, particularly services to and from southern England, with international routes less impacted, recording a 10% rise in international passengers.
