Traffic figures at all MAG airports were severely impacted by the outbreak of Covid-19 in March, 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 over 50% year-on-year in March, and figures in April are expected to be down even more significantly.

At East Midlands Airport, cargo figures held flat (-0.1%), as key freight operators increased capacity. The airport is playing a key role in keeping essential goods flowing into the country and providing UK firms with a key route to export. The airport hosts the country’s most important pure air freight operation and is now in the top 10 busiest European airports by flight numbers.
