MAp reports (20-May-2010) the following traffic highlights in Apr-2010:

  • Passenger numbers:
    • Sydney Airport: 2.9 million, +6.4% year-on-year;
      • Domestic: 2.0 million, +8.6%;
      • International: 879,000, +1.5%;
    • Copenhagen Airport: 1.3 million, -19.2%;
    • Brussels Airport: 1.2 million, -23%;
    • ASUR: 1.5 million, -0.9%. [more]

MAp: “April traffic was impacted by the closure of large parts of European space as a result of the volcanic ash cloud and the earlier timing of Easter on the pcp. Whilst Sydney has delivered a pleasing increase in passengers, owing to a particularly strong domestic performance, traffic at our European airports reflected the airports’ closures over a five-day period. Brussels and Copenhagen have now returned to full operations and there is not expected to be a permanent impact on traffic", Ms Kerrie Mather, MAp Chief Executive Office.
