Eindhoven Airport achieves 13% growth in first six months of 2015

Eindhoven, 6th August 2015

Eindhoven Airport has increased passenger numbers by 13% in the first half of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014. During the period of January to the end of June, the airport served 2,056,797 passengers, 234,333 more than in the first six months of 2014 (2014: 1,822,464 passengers). The growth in the number of flight movements for the period is 6%, equalling 14,750 flight movements from January until the end of June 2015. The first half of 2014 in contrast saw 13,960 flight movements.


Eindhoven Airport anticipates 2015 growth of 8%, reaching 4.2 million passengers (2014: 3.9 million passengers). The number of flight movements for the year is expected to reach 29,900 (2014: 28,909 flight movements).


The 13% rise in passenger numbers in the first half of the year is mainly thanks to an increase in the number of flight movements (in turn, among others, a consequence of an increase in the number of destinations from 73 in 2014 to 75 in the first half of 2015), as well as an improved average occupancy rate of 139 passengers per flight movement in 2015, compared to 131 in 2014.
