Traffic information (Terminal Passengers) for UK airports (October 2010)
This infographic shows traffic information (Terminal Passengers) in October 2010 for a selection of UK airports. (Click here to see last month’s, BAA-only, graph.)
On a UK map, the six BAA airports (London Heathrow, London Stansted, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen) and London Gatwick, London City and Manchester airports are indicated. For each, you can see its number of terminal passengers in October 2010, and a comparison to October 2009 figures.
There are also line graphs showing their October Terminal Passengers figures for the last 5 years (2006-2010).
While Stansted, Glasgow and Aberdeen had their lowest October for the last 5-year period, Heathrow and Edinburgh had their highest October for the same period.
Interestingly, while in October 2006 Glasgow had about a hundred thousand terminal passengers more than Edinburgh, in 2008 their traffic was about the same, and last month Edinburgh served about two hundred thousand more terminal passengers than Glasgow Airport.
I have been designing maps, diagrams, information cards, plans and other graphics-related material for the aviation industry since early 2008, so this graph comes out of personal interest and curiosity.
