ZQN Airport Monthly Passenger Update – FEBRUARY 2015

By Nina Jensen

February was a particularly busy month in and out of Queenstown with total passenger numbers up 12% compared to February 2014.

International numbers continued to grow strongly on all trans-Tasman routes up 38.2% on the same period last year.  Capacity continues to grow, with more flights on all established routes, boosted by the new Gold Coast route.

Domestic arrivals in February were up 5.1% with passenger numbers continuing to grow on the Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington routes.  The use of larger aircraft’s on existing domestic routes also contributed to this growth.

It was a strong month for private jets with 32 landing.

In addition to it being a traditional peak season, the ongoing growth was boosted by more Chinese visitors over the Chinese New Year period.
