February 2012 traffic statistics


7.3% growth in February 2012, just a few weeks away from the start of the high season

Bordeaux Airport clocked nearly 275,800 passengers last month, 18,700 more than in February 2011 and an increase of 7.3% (+9% since the start of the year). The strike from the 6th to the 9th February caused the loss of almost 4 growth points, and particularly affected the Bordeaux-Paris service, especially Orly. Even if international flights only transported 168,000 passengers compared to domestic traffics 381,900, they still boosted growth with more than a 20.66% increase.
As far as low-cost companies go, their traffic still up by 29.2%.


Madrid (+96%), Lisbon (+86%), Marseille (+29%) and London Gatwick (+20%) showed the strongest growth rates in February, a few weeks away from the start of the high season (from 25th March) with new chartered lines:

- Nice and Lisbon (Easyjet from 25th March and 20th April)

- Marseille (Ryanair from 25th March),

- Alger (Aigle Azur from 14th April),

- Venice (Volotea from 25th April),

- Figari (Air France from 12th May),

- Palma de Mallorca (Vueling from 22nd June),

And the wider selection of flights already on offer:

- 2 weekly
flights to St-Denis on Reunion Island, which is one extra flight (Air Austral),

- 23 weekly flights to Amsterdam, which is 7 more (Air France / KLM),

- 4 weekly flights to Tunis, which is 2 extra flights (Tunisair)

Chartered flights, which have contracted by 1%, will soon be able to take advantage of new offers from tour operators, with new destinations such as Fuerteventura and Lanzarote (Fram), Antalya and Punta Cana (Marmara).
