ZQN Airport Monthly Passenger Update – MAY 2015

By Nina Jensen

Overall Queenstown Airport achieved a very strong result for May, which is traditionally the quietest month.  Total passenger volumes through the airport were up 16% on May 2014.  Flight capacity increased with 44% more international landings and 11% more domestic landings than May last year.

May also saw a huge increase in international passengers – up 47% on May 2014, with most of the growth was on the Sydney and Coolangatta routes (however it should be noted that the new Gold Coast service was not in effect in May last year).

Steady growth continued across all domestic routes with passenger numbers up 10%.  The Auckland route was a standout performer, with an 11% increase in passenger numbers compared to the same period last year
