Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport: “Our international result this month was driven primarily by an increase in seat capacity and ongoing strong growth from our key Asian markets. We were particularly pleased with the Indian market performance (+18%) driven by the first full month of Air India’s operation of direct services serving Delhi. In fact, six of our Asian nationality markets delivered double digit growth this month, with the strongest market being Greater China, with 28% from Mainland China, 27% from Taiwan and 23% from Hong Kong. These growth rates are particularly pleasing given a number of airlines suffered interruptions due to Typhoon Usagi,” Kerrie Mather, CEO. Company statement, 18-Oct-2013.
