June 2014 Monthly traffic update

3.7%International passenger volumes (excluding transit passengers) were 3.7% higher in June 2014 than the previous year. Passenger growth was achieved across all route regions. Asia was the strongest performer (+5.1%) on the back of strong passenger growth on the Japanese, Chinese and Malaysian routes. Winter holiday destination travel also drove strong passenger numbers on the Pacific (+3.4%) and Trans-Tasman (+3.6%) routes.
5.9%More overseas visitors are arriving at Auckland Airport than ever before. Overseas visitor arrivals for the year ended 30 June 2014 grew 5.9% on the previous year. The largest visitor increases came from Australia (up 36,104), United States of America (16,847) and China (13,213). The growth has been driven by capacity increases on Trans-Tasman routes and increased direct routes from China and the United States.
Comparison to Aeronautical Pricing ForecastAnnual movements in passenger numbers processed at Auckland Airport between the 2014 and 2013 financial years compared to the estimated passenger movements used in the regulated pricing forecast were: International passengers up 5.1% compared to the 3.6% increase provided for in the pricing forecast; transit passengers up 5.5% (vs 3.4%); and Domestic passengers up 2.2% (vs 3.4%). The pricing forecast excluded anticipated passenger growth resulting from non-airline funded marketing activities undertaken by Auckland Airport.2.6%In the past year passenger volumes at North Queensland Airports have been impacted by a number of factors including service reductions, schedule changes, cyclones and the downturn in the mining industry (impacting predominantly Mackay). However, total passenger numbers at Cairns have grown 2.6% for the 12 months ended 30 June 2014, on the back of 4.6% domestic passenger growth. This domestic growth has developed due to more international passengers visiting Cairns on domestic flights from within Australia, following reductions in direct international services to Cairns.
