This infographic shows traffic information (Terminal Passengers) in November 2010 for a selection of UK airports. (Click here to see last month’s graph.)

On a UK map, the six BAA airports (London Heathrow, London Stansted, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen) and London Gatwick, London City and Manchester airports are indicated. For each, apart from London City Airport, you can see its number of terminal passengers in November 2010, and a comparison to November 2009 figures.

There are also line graphs showing their November Terminal Passengers figures for the last 5 years (2006-2010).

While Stansted, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Southampton had their lowest November for the last 5-year period, Heathrow had its highest November ever; it is the 5th consecutive record month for Heathrow!

I have been designing maps, diagrams, information cards, plans and other graphics-related material for the aviation industry since early 2008, so this graph comes out of personal interest and curiosity.
