BAA Glasgow Airport
INTERNATIONAL passenger numbers at Glasgow airport soared almost 10 per cent last month as Scots sought some late summer sunshine.
Non-domestic traffic was up 9.7 per cent on the same month last year, with holidaymakers journeying to Malaga and Alicante as well as more far-flung destinations such as Dubai and Toronto.
Almost 740,000 people travelled through Glasgow airport in September, an overall increase of 5.6 per cent, operators BAA said.
Traffic through Aberdeen airport increased by 1.4 per cent to just over 302,000 people.
At Edinburgh airport, international traffic grew by 0.9 per cent but overall numbers dropped 2.2 per cent on September 2011.
Edinburgh airport said 880,124 passengers travelled through Scotland's busiest hub last month.
Glasgow airport managing director Amanda McMillan said: "It is very encouraging to be able to continue our trend of passenger growth by reporting such positive figures for September.
"It is also significant that domestic traffic has returned to growth."
More than 100,000 people are expected to pass through Glasgow airport this weekend as part of the October school holiday break.
