ZQN Airport Monthly Passenger Update – JUNE 2016

By Nina Jensen

Passenger numbers are growing strongly, with 1.6 million passengers passing through Queenstown Airport in the 12 months to June 2016.

June is historically one of the airport’s quietest months but increased airline capacity and the new domestic and international evening services boosted growth, particularly towards the end of the month as ski fields opened and Winter Festival and Australian school holidays began.  Total passenger movements through the airport increased 20.4% in June compared to the same period last year.

Domestic passenger numbers continued to grow strongly – up 22.4% on June 2015 – with extra seats added on all domestic routes. 

International passenger numbers increased by 16.2% – spiking in the last two weeks of June – compared to the corresponding period last year. 

In May and June, evening flights carried just under 12,000 passengers.
