Sydney Airport CEO Geoff Culbert said, “Sydney Airport experienced exceptional international passenger traffic growth of 11.1% during the March holiday period. This was contributed to in part by an earlier Easter holiday period for 2018 compared to 2017. During this period, we had capacity growth of 7.5% (more than 120,000 additional seats) and a 2.3 percentage point increase in average load factors above the prior corresponding period (pcp).
“The nationalities which had the greatest contribution to our international performance over the March holiday season were Indian (+28.2%), Chinese (+19.9%), South Korean (+15.2%) and the USA (+14.3%). This is a pleasing performance from some of our largest markets and is a direct result of increasing seat capacity.
“Domestic growth was a robust 3.5% for March compared to the pcp, driven by a 1.4 percentage point improvement in load factors and a 1.7% increase in capacity.
“We were delighted that during the month, Skytrax named Sydney Airport as the top airport in the Australia/Pacific region by customers participating in one of the largest global customer satisfaction surveys. The Skytrax World Airport Awards assess customer service and facilities across 550 airports and are based on more than 13.7 million survey questionnaires completed by travellers of more than 100 nationalities. This level of global recognition is testimony to the work the team has undertaken to improve the customer experience at Sydney Airport.”
