Traffic figures at all MAG airports were severely impacted by the outbreak of Covid-19 in April, as travel restrictions and a dramatic reduction in demand for flights impacted the Group’s passenger numbers, in common with all other airports around the world.

All MAG airports saw passenger figures reduce by at least 99% year-on-year in April, with MAG’s three airports serving 37,495 passengers between them, compared with over 5 million last April.

At London Stansted Airport and East Midlands Airports, cargo figures held up well (STN: +9.1%, EMA: -6.8%) as key freight operators used the airports to.keep essential goods flowing into the country and providing UK firms with a key route to export.

East Midlands Airport was one of Europe’s top 10 airports by flight numbers in April, as its important role as the UK’s biggest airport for cargo aircraft was consolidated.
