ZQN Airport Monthly Passenger Update – JANUARY 2015

By Nina Jensen

Queenstown Airport saw continued strong growth across domestic and international routes in January, with overall passenger numbers up 12% compared to January 2014.

The airport saw very strong international passenger growth; up 36% on January last year.  There was growth across all Australian routes with 46% more international flights compared to January last year.  This growth was boosted by the three flights per week on the Gold Coast route which commenced in mid-December.

It was a record month for domestic passengers, with numbers up 5% compared to the same period last year.  The increase was primarily on the Auckland-Queenstown route but more jets on the Christchurch and Wellington routes provided extra capacity.

It was another strong month for private jets, with 30 landings in January, up 20% on the same period last year.
