The CAA collects statistics from more than 60 UK Airports. Information is supplied on each individual air transport flight with other movements, for example Private or Aero Club, being reported as a block monthly total.

From the individual flight records it is possible to build up pictures of the activity at each reporting airport. In addition the traffic and capacity on each route to/from the airport can be assessed. Airport statistics are available as monthly or annual publications or you may commission reports to suit your particular needs.

The information contained in these reports has been compiled from various sources of data. CAA validates this data, however, no warranty is given as to its accuracy, integrity or reliability. CAA cannot accept liability for any financial loss caused by a person’s reliance on any of these statistics. No statistical data provided by CAA maybe sold on to a third party. CAA insists that they are referenced in any publication that makes reference to CAA Statistics.

Table series 2, 7 and 11 are discontinued and no longer available.

Tables 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3 may contain a number of airports marked as ‘Unknown’

Results for Norwich Airport have been amended and as a result all tables were updated on 15 February 2017.

Belfast International – Cargo only services are not included in the routinely published reports for the period April 2016 to July 2017. This affects tables which record and/or identify movements, freight and mail carried. Details of monthly cargo only movements, freight and mail data covering April 2016 to July 2017 can be accessed here.

Cancellation data is published with effect from April 2016 data. This affects information reported on tables which record and/or identify Air Transport Movements - tables 4, 5 and 6. Table 4a provides breakdown of Air Transport Movements that operated and those which were cancelled. However, currently it is not possible for all airports to report this information. These airports will include the information as soon as possible.

As at 29 June 2018 Table 08 has been updated. This is due to a problem identified affecting the passenger figures which has now been resolved.
