Passenger volume across the group was also 10% more in comparison to the month of March.

During the month of April, the group also recruited new team members.

MAG CEO Charlie Cornish said: “Recovery across all three of our airports continues at pace, illustrating the huge pent-up demand for international travel we knew was in the market.

“We have worked positively with our airline partners to deliver a full flying schedule for our passengers, ensuring they get away on their trips as planned.

“I am pleased with the significant progress we have made and continue to make with our recruitment efforts, which will equip our airports well for the summer.”
