MORE than 625,000 passengers passed through Bristol Airport in June, smashing its previous record.

Poor weather in the UK and an increased number of routes saw the terminal record its busiest ever June, beating a record that has stood for five years.

It represents a 3.4 per cent rise for the airport on last year’s figures, despite an extra bank holiday courtesy of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Shaun Browne, aviation director at Bristol Airport, said new or extra services to Frankfurt, Munich, Corsica, Amsterdam and Crete had all proved popular with business travellers and holidaymakers.

He added: “We are delighted with June’s results, which demonstrate returning confidence in both the business and leisure travel markets.

“We will look to build on this successful first half of the year, and are already working hard on new initiatives for 2014, with new or additional services likely to be announced in the coming months.”
