Sydney Airport announces fall in Sep-2011 domestic traffic, international up

Australia's Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport announced the following traffic highlights in Sep-2011:

  • Passenger numbers: 2,989,000, -0.5%;
    • Domestic: 2,005,000, -2.2%;
    • International: 977,000, +3.4%.

MAp: “Solid international traffic growth at Sydney Airport in September was offset by a disrupted domestic market, resulting in a small decrease in traffic. International growth benefited from strong Australian outbound travel driven by the NSW school holidays, as well as double digit growth from China and India." Kerrie Mather, CEO.
