2016 is shaping up to be a banner year for the London International Airport.
The airport posted it’s seventh straight month of record breaking passenger activity in October with a total of 43,952 people flying in and out of London.
That represents an increase of 7% over the same month last year, and breaks the record set back in 2007 when just over 42,000 people passed through the airport.
August was the busiest month the airport has had this year, with over 54,000 people flying in and out.
“It appears the people of the area are embracing their airport,” said Mike Seabrook, President and CEO of London International in a media release. “With the southern destination season upon us, we strongly believe we will reach our goal of half a million passengers this year.”
It’s possible the London airport could hit the half a million passenger mark in 2016. If that were to happen, it would break the record set last year when 481,943 travelers flew out of London.
