MAp: “MAp’s airports delivered pleasing long-haul traffic growth in Aug-2011. At Sydney Airport, the Asian markets continued to perform well with strong growth from China, Indonesia and Malaysia. Copenhagen delivered another monthly passenger record with strong international growth offsetting weaker domestic traffic, while Brussels’ traffic grew across all passenger segments,” Kerrie Mather, CEO.

MAp: Sydney recorded a small decrease in traffic during August, with international growth offset by a weaker domestic market. International growth continues to benefit from Australian outbound and Asian inbound travel, with the Chinese, Indonesian and Malaysian markets performing particularly well. The growth from Asian markets has been bolstered by capacity additions from a number of carriers including China Southern, China Eastern and Singapore Airlines, and we are delighted that Garuda Indonesia intends to operate twice-daily services to Indonesia. The Australian Government’s support for the alliance between Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines is also positive for the region and for Sydney’s position as Australia’s premier gateway,” Kerrie Mather, CEO.
