There has been good news for Heathrow Airport as the super-hub recorded it's busiest June on record.
Numbers were up 6.3% on June 2010 and this is partly due to the industrial action at British Airways and this is said to account for 3.5% of the low passenger numbers in June 2010. The increased figures are attributed to increased long-haul traffic with much heading towards North America and an improvement in its performance as a stop over destination.
BAA's Scottish Airports saw the biggest percentage increase with Aberdeen up 10.1%, Edinburgh 7.6% and Glasgow 2.6%.
All these figures are dwarfed by Brazil which saw a rise of 65.4% in passengers since June 2010!
