Passenger numbers have risen for the fourth month running at Aberdeen International Airport.
The airport has reported an increase in both domestic and international travel.
In May 274,263 people travelled through the facility, up 4.2% domestically and 1.4% internationally.
However, helicopter traffic saw a decline of 8.4% for May.
This year almost 1.2 million people have passed through the airport.
It expanded its route network last month with the launch of Air Baltic’s direct summer service to the Latvian capital of Riga and a third new summer route from Ryanair to Faro.
Carol Benzie, managing director of Aberdeen International Airport, said: “It is very encouraging to see both our international and domestic routes continue to perform well as we head into the peak summer season. It’s at this time of year that we expect to see an increase in demand for a number of the new routes we’ve introduced over the last year, particularly our new sun destinations.
“These new summer routes are already proving highly popular with local holidaymakers.
“We are now feeling optimistic rather than cautious as we are looking to continue a year-on-year growth of passenger numbers.
“It means now we can go to operators with a little extra spring in the step and look to bring in more destinations for next summer.”
Jenni Fraser, business development director of VisitAberdeenshire, said: “It’s fantastic to see that passenger numbers at the airport are continuing to increase, which can only be a good thing for the wider Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire region.”
