Melbourne Airport Update, October 2018

24 /01/ 2018 Comments are Closed

Momentum at Melbourne Airport continued in September as international traveller volumes peaked at around 960,000 people, a rise of almost 10 per cent on September 2017. The combined total of domestic and international passenger figures surpassed 3.1 million, resulting in a growth of 3.4 per cent compared to the same time last year.

The airport also added a new non-stop destination to its list thanks to Qantas’ service to San Francisco which launched on 1 September. The new route opens up the golden state for the first time and provides passengers with more connections to the US west coast.

Last Wednesday, Melbourne Airport hosted its 2018 Stakeholder Event at the Melbourne Jet Base showcasing FY2016/17 achievements and future plans. Approximately 300 guests, including commercial and government stakeholders, attended the event to find out more about its operation and long-term plans, presented by Melbourne Airport CEO Lyell Strambi.
