Northern Ireland air passenger flow statistics

Air Passenger Flow includes information on the passenger throughput of local airports as well as information on Northern Ireland residents using airports in the Republic of Ireland.

Tourism data is derived from a variety of sources. NISRA will continue to publish as much data as possible and will explore other indicators if the original source is affected. This document gives an idea of the impact on each of the surveys NI tourism statistics depend on.    Impact of COVID-19 on Northern Ireland tourism statistics

Due to the coronavirus illness (COVID-19) we anticipate that there will be some changes in terms of our regular statistical production. See the COVID-19 and the production of statistics page for more information.
