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.

Notification of delay to publication of Northern Ireland quarterly tourism statistics and air passenger flow. We would like to inform users that due to continuing issues with the Household Travel Survey (HTS) data provided by Central Statistics Office (CSO), NISRA Tourism Statistics are currently unable to publish toruism estimates for Northern Ireland. These statistics are usually published around this time of year amd NISRA are liaising closely with CSO whilst they try and resolve the issue. We will keep users informed of developments. Further information on the issue can be found on the CSO website.
