Map: “Traffic across our airports for August continues to demonstrate the improving trend of recent months.  Particularly pleasing is the modest increase in traffic, both international and domestic, at Sydney, although the pcp did experience some negative impact on international travel due to the Beijing Olympics.  We are seeing strong growth on major routes where capacity additions have been occurring such as the trans-Pacific and Middle East routes. Across our European airports, the declines in origin and destination traffic are now in the 3%-4% range, a significant improvement over the performance experienced earlier in the year,” MAp Chief Executive Officer, Ms Kerrie Mather, Source: Map, 18-Sep-2009.
