Australia’s Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) reports (06-Feb-2013) the following international traffic highlights to/from Australia in Nov-2012:

BITRE also reported low cost carriers (LCCs) AirAsia X, Indonesia AirAsia, Jetstar, Jetstar Asia, Tiger Airways and Scoot accounted for 13.8% of total international passenger traffic to/from Australia in Nov-2012. The LCC share in Nov-2011 was 19.2%. The decrease of 5.4 ppts from Nov-2011 to Nov-2012 is mainly due to Pacific Blue and Polynesian Blue being counted as LCCs to Nov-2011 while for Dec-2011 and onwards, the rebranded Virgin Australia and Virgin Samoa are not counted as LCCs.
