Additional Comments: A minor decrease - shouldn't have happened, period. That said, the airport recognised the need to arrest the decline and acted accordingly by bringing in Loganair and you can't really ask for any more than that. As reported previously Aberdeen figures have been suspect, previously I've used table 12_2 "Domestic Air Pax Route Analysis" on the CAA website, on this occasion I've used table 12_3 "Domestic Air Pax Route Analysis By Each Reporting Airport" which gives a more believeable figure, yet another forum gives a third figure...then again said forum is far from reliable! Amsterdam has done well again but I anticipate stagnation, maybe even a decline on the horizon...nothing permanent it will bounce back again but don't be surprised if it happens!

Other [insignificant] passenger numbers reported for December: Bristol (32), Humberside (123). Bristol was a charter, Humberside showing as scheduled.
