Birmingham Airport has recorded the busiest year in its 77 year history, seeing eleven million passengers travel through it's gates.
Compared to the figures between 2014 and 2015, 10.2% more people have travelled.
Airport officials say it's due to airlines increasing their capacity and launching new services to and from the Midlands airport.
The airport has also recorded its busiest single day to date on the 19th August 2016 when 44,767 passengers were recorded taking to the skies.
Reaching 10 million passengers last August was a big milestone in the airport’s history but reaching 11 million is an absolute game changer. It shows that demand for flying to and from the Midlands is rapidly rising and this is only expected to continue as national and international investment in the region continues and the Midlands Engine powers on.
