Major first for Toulouse-Blagnac Airport in July

Last month saw a major first for Toulouse-Blagnac airport: more passengers were recorded for the month of July than for June, traditionally the busiest month of the year. This year, having welcomed 855,682 passengers (+19.7%), the airport has had a record-breaking July. This growth is again driven by international traffic (+32.9%), with over 485,000 passengers recorded. The low-cost sector now accounts for 40.4% of total traffic, an increase of 64.8% compared to last year.
