Traffic figures at all MAG airports were severely impacted by the outbreak of Covid-19 in May, as travel restrictions and a dramatic reduction in demand for flights impacted the Group’s passenger numbers. MAG’s reduction was reflective of world trends, with global travel demand reduced by 97% compared to previous year, according to UK Government data.
All MAG airports saw passenger figures reduce by at least 99.3% year-on-year in May, with MAG’s three airports serving 39,357 passengers between them, compared with 5.7 million last May.
At London Stansted Airport and East Midlands Airports, cargo figures held up well (STN: +14.1%, EMA: -0.7%) as key freight operators used the airports to keep essential goods flowing into the country and providing UK firms with a key route to export.
East Midlands Airport was one of the most resilient European airports by flight numbers in May, as its important role as the UK’s biggest airport for cargo aircraft continued.
I post the figures every month !Not disputing the data, it’s obvious what’s happening, but once again it’s a shame IanF posts so quickly the negative figures like he’s playing fastest finger first on who wants to be a millionaire, but when the figures are positive, it’s like his computer/device mysteriously stops working?
History repeating really, it was the same the last time we had a recession and run of negative figures.
Point I’m getting at, once again it seems the MAN sub-forum only gets ‘outside visitors’ when there’s something bad to report. When there’s something good, it seems the only visitors are the crickets and tumbleweed. I’ve got no issue with people posting, but remember, you are allowed to discuss positives here too you know guys!
No, I don’t want ‘only positive news posting’, but it would be nice if there was as much effort to join the debate when the news is good as it does when the news is bad. When the news I sent good, it’s predominantly the ‘scotty, David and Mullion show’. When the news is bad, then all of a sudden everyone’s a MAN expert. Balance works both ways, good and bad.do the the "manchester members" only want positive news posting?
Thanks JennyJet - I post stats as and when they are publishedIn post #910, Sir Raymond passed judgment on a single posting of Ian F. Written like a good lawyer would. The discussion continues hopefully in a good spirit since there little positive to report. I only wish BHX management could be as honest with bad news as Ian F has been.
