Queenstown Airport monthly passenger traffic report – December 2018

January 25, 2019 Airport No Comments

Below is a summary of the monthly passenger numbers compared with the same period last year:

The total number of passengers travelling through the terminal increased by 10% compared with last year to 219,293 passengers in December.

  • Domestic traffic was up 8% on December last year to 159,374 passengers, with growth strongest in the first and last weeks of the month.
  • Traffic across the Tasman was up 14% on last December to 59,919, mainly due to a 16% increase in capacity (or 32 more flights- both arrivals and departures) on last year.
  • In December, the 12-month passenger numbers reached 2,241,920 million, up 11% compared to the previous 12 months with growth in domestic and international.

Some interesting key facts:

  • Growth in international passengers was stronger in the second half of the month in-line with Christmas, New Year and Australian school holidays.
  • Domestic passenger numbers peaked at both at the start of the month and the end of the month, coinciding again with Christmas and NZ school holidays.
  • The busiest day was 29 December with almost 9,800 passengers through, making it the airport’s 2nd busiest day on record.
  • Other events included Shania Twain in Dunedin (minimal impact on numbers) and Rhythm and Alps in the Cardrona Valley which attracted a crowd of over 10,000 across the weekend
