SOUTHAMPTON Airport saw a 1.7 per cent reduction in passenger numbers in March, new figures have revealed.

However, the airport, which has recently upgraded its facilities, maintains it is still flying high as its passenger numbers for the first three months of the year have increased by 0.5 per cent compared to the same time last year.

An airport spokeswoman said: ‘The slightly lower figure in March 2012 compared to March 2011 can be attributed to poor weather at the beginning of the month and the temporary loss of the Flybe flights to Brussels, which will be reinstated by Eastern Airways on Monday, April 16, with flights operating six days a week.’
