Passenger numbers continued to increase at BAA-owned airports in September, the company said yesterday, with Heathrow, Europe’s busiest, handling 6.3m passengers up 0.6 per cent from a year ago. BAA’s four other airports – Stansted, Southampton, Glasgow and Aberdeen – saw 9.2m passengers in total, the same number as September 2011. Strong traffic from emerging markets such as Brazil continued.
