In June 2013 Bordeaux Airport posted growth of +3.3% compared
with 2012 with almost 435,000 passengers every month; low-cost flights
accounted for 34.5% of the total. Regular domestic and international traffic
also increased, by +2.2% and +7.2% respectively. Nevertheless, growth was very
heavily impacted by the air controllers' strike on 11, 12 and 13 June. 186 flights
had to be cancelled, which represents a loss of 3.3 growth points in traffic
(about 15,000 passengers).
