The Queenstown Airport Corporation has just released new figures that show an 8% annual growth rate with international passengers showing a 24% increase in the month of August 2019 compared with August 2018.

Domestic passengers were only up by 2% on the same month on month basis.

Here's the QAC breakdown of the key numbers - and a link to their full passenger volume data.

The total number of passengers travelling through the terminal in August 2019 increased by 9% compared with August 2018 to 221,980 passengers.

  • Domestic traffic was up 2% on last year to 137,379.
  • International traffic was up 24% on last year to 84,601, largely due to Qantas introducing a seasonal Melbourne flight (July and August only).
  • The 12-month passenger numbers reached 2,351,206 million, up 8% compared to the previous 12 months.
  • The main events during August were Winter Pride and the first week of the Winter Games NZ.
