Farnborough Airport has seen a year-on-year increase in air traffic movements of 5.3 per cent for the year 2019. For December 2019, the airport recorded an 11.6 per cent increase in movements for the month, with initial forecasts indicating this positive trend is set to continue in 2020.
Specifically, air traffic movements to and from the US experienced significant growth during the year, with an increase of 15 per cent year-on-year. In the same period, traffic to and from Europe saw a six per cent increase.

“Our performance in 2019 underpins the important role Farnborough airport plays as Europe's leading business airport. It is clear that customers continue to see us as the business airport of choice in this region,” says CEO Brandon O'Reilly. “This success is a testament to the dedication of all our employees and the service they provide to our customers day in, day out.”
