Rise In Edinburgh Airport Numbers
The number of people passing through Edinburgh Airport increased last month, with a "massive'' jump in the number of international passengers.
Latest figures showed 700,142 people used the airport in January, up 11.4% on the same month last year.
The 342,540 international passengers recorded was a 21.7% annual increase - the greatest monthly rise since January 2008.
Gordon Dewar, the airport's chief executive, said: "January's passenger numbers are very welcome indeed and the massive increase in the number of international passengers highlights the growing draw of Edinburgh as a prime global destination.
"We are continuing to offer greater choice with more routes and more destinations - and passengers are responding by flying in and out of Edinburgh directly in greater numbers than ever before."
