| July 12, 2010 | 0 Comments

BAA has today reported a further fall in passenger numbers at its six British airports in June, as a result of the British Airways (BA) strikes during the month.

BAA, which is majority owned by Spain’s Ferrovial, said passenger traffic fell 1.7% in June year-on-year - due to the ongoing disruption from the strike.

So far, cabin crew members have held 22 days of strikes after being involved in a long-running dispute with the airline over cost-cutting measures, which include a pay freeze, a switch to part-time working for thousands of staff, as well as removing travel perks, which were stripped from members during the strike in March.

The airline recently reported it carried 2.57 million people in June - a fall of 11% compared with June last year.

In the meantime, BAA said Glasgow airport suffered the worst fall with traffic down 7% year-on-year.

Stansted experienced a 5.2% fall in traffic, however, BA does not fly from this airport.

BAA said passenger traffic fell 22.7% in April year-on-year after flights were cancelled for almost a week due to the volcanic ash cloud.
