The César Manrique airport in Lanzarote has marked its best month of May in history in terms of passenger movement , with 580,136 travelers, compared to the previous record of 2018 set at 570,149, according to a report by Aeropuertos Nacionales (AENA), collected by the Lanzarote Data Centre.
Despite the fact that May tends to be a month with less traffic, since it does not coincide with the Easter and summer vacation periods, it has managed to stand out for its good data compared to previous years.
In addition, it should be noted that the fifth month of 2022 exceeded last year's figures by 281.3%, a period marked by the strong restrictions of the pandemic. However, as expected, it fell compared to the immediately previous months , since 645,233 travellers were registered in April and 607,643 in March.
The accumulated figure for 2022 is 2,733,010 passengers, 476.5% more year-on-year.
