Melbourne Tullamarine Airport pax up 5% in Jan-2013, better performance from traditional markets

Australia's Melbourne Tullamarine Airport reported (20-Feb-2013) passenger numbers increased 5% year-on-year to 2.6 million in Jan-2013. International traffic increased 2% to 679,429, although traffic "from key Asian growth markets such as China, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan were affected by the Chinese New Year holiday period falling outside the month, which should be reflected in figures for February". Traditional markets such as the UK and the US showed better performance in Jan-2013, with increases of 7%, respectively. Travel by Australian passport holders increased by 2%. During the month, Melbourne Airport celebrated its 100 millionth international passenger. Domestic passengers increased 6% to 1.9 million. [more - original PR]
