Birmingham Airport is the Midlands' largest airport, serving 12 million passengers annually and 150 direct global destinations plus a further 340 one-stop long-haul routes with 50 airlines.In 2016, it saw a 14.2% increase in passengers and has celebrated two years of consecutive monthly record growth. Long-haul traffic has seen the most significant passenger increase, with a 21.3% year-on-year rise due to the introduction of new global routes which have provided vital trade links to help power the Midlands Engine.
Despite this boom, the airport managed to get more flights in and out on time than any other airport, becoming the world's most punctual airport in 2016.
