Airport Comparisons FY17

Cairns Airport data for August didn’t really provide anything worthy of new comment. So have finally updated some graphs and BITRE data at the Cairns Airport page.

Most recent comparative BITRE data for the top 20 airports is updated to June 2017. Growth leaders for FY2017 are dominated by tourism related destinations along with Canberra and Williamtown (Newcastle).

The obvious trend anomaly there is Hamilton Island where traffic plummeted in the final months of the year following the impact of Cyclone Debbie. Not sure what the current status is of  Whitsundays tourism and construction recovery.

BITRE have further updated separate city-pairs data for July with Sydney-Hamilton Island down 34.1% for the month and Brisbane – Hamilton Island down 13.1%. However Brisbane – Proserpine is +26.5% and Brisbane – Mackay +4.5%.

Previous declines in resource destination routes will eventually wash through the data. Brisbane – Moranbah (+12.1%), Emerald (+7.8%), and Mt Isa (+6.2%) were all promoted to the city-pair growth first eleven for July.
