ZQN Airport Monthly Passenger Update – JULY 2015

By Nina Jensen

With the ski fields open, great snow conditions, New Zealand and Australian school holidays, strong aircraft loadings, and the airport’s peak winter flight schedule in effect, all combined to help Queenstown Airport achieve a record-breaking month.  This was despite some early morning snow/ice conditions during the month which caused a few disruptions to services.

o   Total passenger volumes were up 8.0% to hit a new record of 149,553, with international passengers up 10.8% to 62,751 (also a new record) and domestic passengers up 6.0% to 86,802 compared to July last year. 

o   There were record numbers of passengers on all four trans-Tasman routes for the month and a milestone was reached with more than 400,000 international passengers passing through the airport in the last 12 months.

o   On 4 July we had the highest number of international arriving passengers and aircraft in a single day (11 international landings with 1,585 passengers) and in a single week (8,430 international passengers arriving in the week ending 5 July).  However, 4 July was not the busiest day ever – the record for our busiest day overall (international and domestic, arrivals and departures) remains Saturday 3 January 2015, with 6,712 passengers.
