1: Growth in Revenue Passenger Movements for December 2016 compared to December 2015
2: Growth in Revenue Passenger Movements for the year ended December 2016 compared to the year ended December 2015Notes: Townsville and Sunshine Coast have only recently commenced scheduled international flights. Consequently while this doesn’t reflect in  international growth numbers for the month it does contribute to the total statistics. Please refer to the volume of passenger movements as well as large increases/decreases might be off a lower base.  Also the statistics from BITRE may not be exactly correlated with those from Cairns Airport with some differences in how they are compiled. An additional leap year day in February 2016 will also account for a component of additional growth for that month.
