  • Gatwick is aiming to crack the 50m mark for passengers

Scotland's two largest airports have had a record year after passenger numbers soared.

Gatwick attributes the boost to continued growth in its long-haul connections, with new routes to Singapore, Rwanda, Seattle and Denver opening in 2017.

Manchester Airport grew 8.5 per cent year-on-year to serve 27.8 million passengers in 2017, more than have ever flown from Manchester before. It also reported a 10-percent surge in cargo volumes to 1.7 million metric tons, led by growth from the United States and East Asia.

The growth comes despite the airport's seventh biggest airline, Monarch, entering administration in October.

Gatwick Airport rounded off a trio of records for London airports, announcing today it welcomed 45.6m passengers a year ago.

The airport's long-haul network grew to 63 connections in 2017, and Gatwick welcomed 7.3 million long-haul passengers across the year - an increase of nearly one million compared with 2016.
