The Airports Commission have published data containing annual passenger forecasts for UK and select foreign airports from 2011 to 2050. The data are available as Excel documents.

The spreadsheets contains annual passenger forecasts from 2011 to 2050, rounded to the nearest million, for 30 modelled UK airports and 4 foreign hubs. These forecasts were produced using a version of the Department for Transport (DfT) aviation model and underpin the assessment of need, described in detail in chapter 4 of the Commission’s Interim report. The technical appendix of the Interim Report provides detail of the methodology, in particular the model updates and Commission’s input assumptions. 4 scenarios are provided:

  • carbon traded, capacity unconstrained data
  • carbon traded, capacity constrained data
  • carbon capped, capacity unconstrained data
