Fall in UK domestic air passengers

After years of growth, the number of UK domestic air passengers fell in the second and third quarters of 2019, with a 6.6% fall in the third quarter of 2019 compared with 12 months before (data from the Civil Aviation Authority [1]).

The fall in the first quarter of 2018 coincided with the "Beast from the East" prolonged severe cold weather, during which many domestic flights were cancelled [2].
