Yes i agree 10 million pax is just more Stobart spin and would not be achievable as the infrastructure and space is just not there to attain that amount of capacity, however i have to say that Stobart have done a fantastic job over the last 10 years in turning a dying airport with just one flight a week, summer only Jersey service into what it is today. There were a lot of doubters that never thought that Easyjet would ever start a base here and now we have a Ryanair base as well, which would have been a pipe dream even a year or so ago, plus now other airlines such as Flybe/Stobart Air, Air Malta, Loganair and Blue Islands operating. Wonder who will be next?.
