Figures released on Thursday show 13,432,485 people passed through Scotland's busiest airport, Edinburgh, past year with global passengers credited with driving growth.
Latest figures show an increase in passengers and one of the world's best scheduled flight punctuality records.
Last year saw 27,791,274 passengers pass through the airport's three terminals, representing an 8.5% increase year on year, with cargo up 9% to 123,576 tonnes.
Aberdeen Airport marked its eighth consecutive month of growth, recording 3.1 million passengers.
Adverse weather conditions meant the December figure was down marginally on the same month in 2016.
Airport strategy director Mark Povall said:"2017 has been another great year with even more passengers choosing to take advantage of the convenience of flying from here with Liverpool now seen as the faster, easier, friendlier airport of choice for passengers from across the region".
Edinburgh Airport chief executive Gordon Dewar said: "This is a fantastic achievement for Edinburgh Airport - to welcome more than 13 million passengers is a real triumph and one that we are delighted by".
"Over the last 12 months we also made considerable improvements to the airport by investing more than £25 million on a number of successful projects including the resurfacing of the runway, increasing aircraft stand capacity and the opening of our new consolidated auto rental centre".
Carol Benzie, its managing director, said: "Domestic fixed-wing traffic has driven much of the total passenger increases which has, in part, been due to chartered services being used by offshore workers to reach destinations such as Sumburgh and Wick, to then connect offshore via helicopter".
Domestic and worldwide traffic was up 4.6 per cent and 8.7 per cent respectively because of strong demand for winter sun destinations.
"In February, Flybe introduced its Aberdeen - London Heathrow route, bringing the weekly connections to the capital to 95 per week".
