September 2013 Monthly traffic update

6.0% International passenger volumes (excluding transit passengers) at Auckland Airport were up 6.0% versus September 2012. This resulted in 34,000 additional passengers with the majority coming from American (+13,000 passengers) and Tasman routes (+17,000 passengers). American growth was once again driven by additional capacity on all North American routes (including the introduction of Hawaiian Airlines). Tasman growth was fuelled by additional capacity and increased average loadings on Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney routes.

+64,000 This time one year ago visitor arrivals from China became the second largest inbound market for the first time. In the last 12 month period visitor arrivals from China have continued to grow and China is now firmly cemented as the second largest inbound travel market. For the 12 months ended 30 September China had 64,000 more arrivals than from the United Kingdom (3rd largest market) and 73,000 more arrivals than from the United States (4th largest market).

64.7% International passenger volumes at Queenstown Airport were up 64.7% versus September 2012. The passenger growth was driven by additions to both Jetstar’s and Air New Zealand’s trans-Tasman schedules with additional services to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne on Jetstar and to Sydney and Melbourne on Air New Zealand.

49.2% Visitor arrivals from China were up 49.2% in September 2013 significantly higher than the financial year to date (+33.1%) and 12 month trends (+26.6%). The growth in Chinese visitor arrivals has come from both direct services from China and dual destination holiday traffic from Australia. September also saw strong performances from traditional Asian inbound markets with visitor arrivals from Korea up 20.7% and visitor arrivals from Japan up 11.6%.
