    Well it doesn't seem to be effecting the load factor's for the flights though obviously we don't know the yields.

    A rise of 5.58% on August 2016. Given that the CAA figures have been around 9/10,000 more than BRS's own numbers each month so far this summer, there is every chance that August will be the first ever month that sees over 900,000 passengers.

    August 2016 saw over 856,000 in the CAA's numbers so a 5.5% increase on that would certainly take last month over 900,000. It was only in August 2014 that the airport first handled over 700,000 in a month.

    For the occasional reader to the BRS forum who might wonder why there is a discrepancy between the CAA stats and the airport's own figures each month (and the annual totals), it's because, for some inexplicable reason, BRS doesn't count certain types of passenger in its own figures - under 2s for example - but the CAA does.

    Could it be that the airport doesn't receive any of their passenger handling fees / charges on under 2's (or any duty free sales !)??

    The airport has never said, publicly at least, why there is a variation; they just say that there is and under2 s were once given as an example of a type of passenger not counted in the airport figures.

    For the past year or two the airport has carried this notice on the facts and figures section of its website:

    *Due to differences in the way some flights are recorded, Bristol Airport figures may contain small variances when compared to those reported by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

    10,000 fewer passengers a month (than the CAA's numbers) seem a bit more than a 'small variance'. It's particularly odd because the CAA gets its stats from the airport in the first place.

    Most airports like to 'boast' about their passenger figures when they are doing well. BRS for some reason plays its numbers down.

    Incidentally, the CAA monthly stats for July once again show Verona as nil despite there being two flights a week in summer and one in winter. Verona seems to be nil every month yet the annual CAA stats record a 12-month total.

    One of our members suggested this was because BRS has been using the wrong ICAO airport code. Verona VillaFranca is LIPX, but the airport has been using LIPN which is a tiny airfield called Verona Boscomantico.

    Indeed. 905,050 is the first time the airport has exceeded 900,000 in a calendar month and it's a rise of 5.7% on August 2016. Atms were up just 1.3%. Rolling 12-month figure of 8,095,866 is 10.9% up on a year ago.

    Very good performance yet again. 7% on the CAA figures for September 2016 would put this September's figure around 839,000 giving a 12-month rolling total at the end of September in the region of 8.15 million.

    Winter

    Airlines are about switch to their winter schedules which will make BRS a lot less busy again with Sundays a good example.

    In peak summer Sundays saw 108 daily arrivals; today sees 97; next Sunday the first of the winter season sees 78 which will undoubtedly drop further in mid winter.

    BRS's busiest month each year is August with 905,000 passengers this year and the least busy is January with 473,000 passengers this year.

    I expect the airport staff will always be pleased to have a breather.

    October 2017

    Airport's own figures for October now published. 761,837 passengers handled in the month, up 7.36% on October 2016.

    Still awaiting the CAA figures for September - the airport's own figures for that month were 830,000, up over 7% on the previous September.

    When the CAA's figures are published for September and October a conservative estimate would put the rolling 12-month total around 8.19 million at the end of October.

    A similar percentage rise in the CAA stats would take the monthly total to between 487,000 and 488,000 with the rolling year total around 8,220,000, perhaps a touch higher.
