When will BHX August pax figures be released, many others were released more than 12 days ago?

August passenger statistics

If you are referring to the CAA statistics then hopefully they may, according to their website, be released tomorrow when the next update is due.

Unfortunately the CAA appear to be either very slow in collating the individual airport data, or the airports themselves have become inefficient in supplying the information in the first place. It never ceases to amaze me that Inverness and Belfast City are two of the last to be provided.

I think they are more referring to the point that BHX has not yet release its own figures for Aug which they would normally have done so by now

Don't know official figures but August was the 30th consecutive month of record passenger numbers.

Just a shame that the infrastructure (security queues, baggage delays, handling delays, border force queues) can't keep up. Yes, it's down to the respective agencies' manning, but it still reflects on the airport as a whole.

100% agree with you. Airport has the potential to be excellent but is let down by poor planning & mismanagement.
More appreciation & investment needed towards the customer experience rather than just profit margins. I know it's a business but this summer has been shambolic at times & the continual blame towards border force/swissport/airlines has become tiresome.

Let's hope the new chairman will focus on rebuilding the reputation of the airport so it can reach its potential.

As a frequent user I'll echo that.

Pedant alert! The open position is CEO, not chairman. The two are totally different.

Just seen on the Bristol thread that CAA figures have been released. BHX July figures were published on the Airports Web Site news section on 15 August, we're 8 days on from that this month, are they imminent?

I'm well aware of the fact the open position is CEO but the chairman of BAL is also new in his role, hence the comment.

sounds fanciful. Will be interesting to see if that ever sees light of day.

Birmingham hits 13 million (Sep 2016 - Sep 2017)

Birmingham Airport hits 13 million milestone :: Routesonline

Which should put the rolling 12 months equal to or slightly above Edinburgh and with continued growth for the remainder of 2017, put BHX up to 6th place in the 2017 UK airport league
