AIA Monthly Traffic Update September 2012

Issued: 23 October 2012 aucklandairport.co.nz

This monthly traffic update from Auckland International Airport Limited (AIAL) is generated with assistance and data from Statistics New Zealand, the New Zealand Customs Service, Airways New Zealand, Immigration New Zealand and AIAL. International passenger movements are actual, domestic passenger movements are estimated by AIAL. Immigration New Zealand has recently refined the transits data, resulting in a re-statement of transit numbers year to date and the prior year comparatives. This document is intended for information purposes. It should not be considered a recommendation, offer or invitation to purchase securities. All reasonable steps have been taken to ensure that the information is true and accurate at the time of publication. * Total international passengers including transits. **Estimation using best available data. ***Maximum Certificated Take-Off weight (MCTOW) forms the basis of determining airfield charges at Auckland Airport.

September 2012 Monthly traffic update 1.4% International passenger volumes (excluding transit passengers) at Auckland Airport were up 1.4% versus September 2011. Chinese routes continued to perform strongly with passengers up 32.9% on last year. Winter holiday destinations also continued to perform strongly into September with passengers on Pacific Island routes up 9.5% on last year and Queensland routes up 8.2%. 15.8% Arrivals by New Zealand residents were up 15.8% in September 2012 compared to last year. This was mainly due to New Zealanders putting their travel on hold during the 2011 Rugby World Cup (RWC). Because of the large impact that the RWC had on overseas visitor arrivals in September 2011, overseas visitor arrivals were comparatively down in September 2012. However overseas visitor arrivals were up 7.0% on September 2010.
11.3% Domestic passenger numbers were strong at both Auckland Airport and our affiliate airports in September 2012. Domestic passengers were up 11.3% on last year at Auckland Airport, 27.1% up at Queenstown Airport and 9.7% up at Cairns Airport. Mackay domestic passengers were down 1.7% versus last year, however, the announcement of new Tiger Airways services to/from Sydney and Melbourne from December 2012 will stimulate domestic passenger growth to/from Mackay. 2nd China was the second largest inbound market during a 12 month period for the first time in the 12 months ending September 2012, moving ahead of the traditional inbound markets of the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Chinese visitor arrivals were up 74.2% compared to September 2011.
