Manchester Airport's September statistics


Top 25 destinations - by passenger numbers


Top destinations with highest percentage increase.


Figures for the European and long-haul destinations that I consider to be the main points for our connecting traffic.

Istanbul figures are affected by the start of the Pegasus service to Sabiha Gokcen airport. The combined figures for both airports gives an increase of 58.8% over the same month last year.

Comparison of top 25 destinations - September 2009 versus September 2019


Major changes to Domestic traffic


Load factors analysis on certain routes

Calculations are based of FlightRadar24 for days of flight operation, Planespotter.net for Seat Plans and CAA data for monthly figures.
Please remember when looking at these figures that they only reflect passengers per flight. One needs to take into account that Addis Ababa and Houston/Singapore are destinations which are part of a route that serves not just Manchester but another city enroute.

I don't understand the CAA. September's data was only released 6 days ago and here we are with October's figures - minus 6 UK airports who have not yet reported.

I've started my usual analysis and hopefully will have it done for tomorrow evening. Right, back to the whisky after an evening of late night shoppng in Cockermouth where - believe it or not - shops were offering glasses of wine whilst you perused their wares.

New York (JFK) – Although the monthly figures is down by 17,391 one must remember that Thomas Cook in September had carried 12,558 passengers until their sad demise on 23rd September.

New York...ouch. It's also by far the biggest Thomas Cook route no one has announced any extra capacity on for next summer.

Probably happy to increase their yields and divert other passengers onto other flights at other airports to help increase their yields there.

It would be disappointing if Virgin didn't increase capacity on JFK next summer. I assume they are still working on aircraft availability in developing plans for further expansion. They've certainly applied for, and obtained, plenty of slots. It's also worth emphasising the high loads UA achieved this summer on EWR with the B764 so New York has been a very strong market for MAN.

Just to annoy TheLocalYokel I'm pleased to be able to provide Manchester's November statistics - and only 3 days into December

I believe that to only be just under 28,000 down on the same month last year is actually a positive outcome.

I expect the CAA will publish their own stats for November around next Easter - if they get their skates on.

Whilst I was studying the November stats I did notice the very large increase in numbers under Private/Misc passengers.

When queried with the airport it has been confirmed that there is an error in the allocation of passengers. The final numbers won't change but I'll amend the spreadsheet to show the correct breakdown and then repost.

It does delight me that, having nurtured contacts over a period of time, I do receive prompt responses to questions.
