February 2013 - Monthly traffic update

February 2013 Monthly traffic update

3.8% International passenger volumes (excluding transit passengers) at Auckland Airport were up 3.8% versus February 2012, however if an adjustment is made for the extra day in last year’s leap year the increase is 7.5%. This year-on-year increase was driven by strong Chinese New Year traffic on Asian routes, as well as continued year on year growth on Australian routes. 94.2% Chinese visitor arrivals performed exceptionally over the Chinese New Year period with arrivals up 94.2% on February 2012. We have seen significant growth in Chinese arrivals during the Chinese New Year period with 30% year on year growth in the combined two month January and February period. This indicates that New Zealand is fast becoming a very popular Chinese New Year holiday destination.
6.1% Domestic passenger movements increased significantly at Auckland Airport and its affiliate airports in February 2013 (refer to the leap year adjustment in brackets below). Domestic passengers were up 6.1% (9.9%) at Auckland, 5.6% (9.4%) at Queenstown and 14.4% (18.5%) at Cairns. 29.7% Japanese visitor arrivals continue to show signs of recovery following the natural disasters in Christchurch and Japan two years ago. The 7,785 visitor arrivals from Japan showed a 29.7% increase on the 6,002 visitors in February 2012. The February 2013 figure was also higher than in February 2010 (6,677), prior to the natural disasters.
