The CAA produces  CAA Airport Statistics each month.  

(Also other CAA data including airline statistics )

Air Transport Movements are on Table 5 each month.                                                           Terminal and Transit passengers are on Table 9 each month.

There are also CAA UK Airline Statistics.
