Scottish airports' passengers on the up, says BAA

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.
