UK's Natl Air Traffic Svcs Says April Flights Up 6%
11 May 2005
Edited Press Release

LONDON (Dow Jones)--National Air Traffic Services (NATS) handled 183,997 flights in April, an increase of six per cent over April 2004. The growth was led by low-cost carriers, the U.K. agency said.

NATS' air traffic control centre at Manchester recorded the highest growth for April 2005, with an increase of 8.6% to 49,627 flights. Swanwick reported an increase of 6.2% (148,980 flights); followed by the Oceanic Centre at Prestwick with 5.8% (29,780 flights); Scottish with 5.4 per cent (49,660 flights); and West Drayton with 5.1% (106,495 flights).

Of the 14 U.K. airports where NATS provides the air traffic control service, 12 reported increased traffic over April 2004, with the highest increases at Luton (21.5%), London City (15.8%) and Southampton (14.2%). The two airports reporting reduced traffic from April 2004 were Birmingham (down 4.6%) and Stansted (down 0.1%).

The average delay per flight (attributable to NATS) fell sharply to 7.1 seconds, down from 24.2 seconds in April 2004. The number of flights receiving no NATS-attributable delay in April 2005 increased to 99.1%, up from 97.1 per cent in April 2004.

Flights to European countries remained popular, with Italy (up 15.8% to 8,146 flights), Spain (up 8.2% to 15,032 flights) and Germany (up 8.0 per cent to 12,648 flights) showing the greatest growth. Flights to the United States showed continued growth, up 4.1% to 7,603 flights over April 2004.

Where did Brisbane end up? I'm thinking around the 70-75 mark. They would have had roughly 15 million+ passengers?

Also, where can i view a full list?

Cheers

Sorry guys the full list is not on the internet. You have to order a copy from ACI at a price (300 euro's) or be a player in the airports industry.
