A high demand for flights from the UK in July has helped boost airline traffic this summer.

A high demand for flights from the UK in July has helped boost airline traffic this summer.

This is according to figures from Nats, which also revealed that more people were booking flights from Aberdeen Airport.

While the majority of airports experienced a decline in traffic over the course of July, Aberdeen enjoyed a 0.5 percent increase in passenger turnover.

Overall, the rate of decrease in terms of the reduction of flights within the UK dropped to 8.9 percent compared to July last year, which is a notable improvement from April, May and June.

Elsewhere, there was a rise of 1.9 percent in arrivals and departures from western and eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

One of the most notable beneficiaries was Turkey, with 12.6 percent more people booking flights to destinations in the country to take advantage of the favourable exchange rate.

Figures from Nats last month revealed a 10.5 percent drop in the number of flights taking off from the UK compared to the same month last year.
