A bumper Easter getaway boosted London Stansted’s traffic figures for April as the airport welcomed more than 2.4 million passengers during the month.

The monthly total was up 16% on April 2022, with the airport also experiencing its busiest day of the year so far with 87,000 passing through the terminal on Easter Monday.

The top three most popular countries during the month were Spain, Italy and Germany, while the busiest routes during April were Dublin, Istanbul and Edinburgh. The variety of popular destinations reflects the fact Stansted has more direct flights to European destinations than any other UK airport.

The total number of passengers that passed through the airport in the 12-months ending April 2023 now stands at 25.8 million, an increase of 111% on the previous year’s total.
