Airport Traffic Data: A 20 Year Review

Australia’s passenger and flight numbers continue to grow according to the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics.  20 years of growth in Australian aviation has seen our airports reap the benefits of healthy tourism, economical advances in aviation and technology improvements. Almost all Australian airports have seen more than 100% growth in passengers and anywhere from 13-70% growth in flights. Tourism Research Australia also released its International Visitor Survey for the year to Jun-2017, reporting international visitor spending finally topped the AUD40 billion mark. It therefore comes as no surprise to see passenger and flight growth as well.
