Aberdeen Airport saw passenger numbers rise nearly 16% in May compared with the previous year, with Glasgow and Edinburgh also recording increases, BAA has said.
Passenger numbers at Glasgow rose almost 10%, and Edinburgh handled 2.2% more passengers compared with 2011.
BAA chief executive Colin Matthews said: "The resilience is encouraging."
The airports all saw their performance affected by cancellations in May last year due to volcanic ash cloud.
