No respite in January numbers at the Airport with domestic down -4.7% on the previous year.
Difficult to know without again any commentary from the Airport. Sydney Airport reported increased domestic traffic towards the end of the month related to pull forward of Chinese new year which should have been a boost for the month. On the other hand January in Cairns was impacted by heavy rainfall and floods with tour operators like Experience Co reporting cancellations.
International held up which may be related to direct Chinese traffic but will have to wait a couple of months for BITRE route data on that.
