Melbourne Airport CEO, Mr Chris Woodruff, said international growth remained solid.
“Our international passenger figures for April were impacted by the timing of Easter which, last year, was later in April and combined with the Anzac Day public holiday, we saw many people take advantage of the extended break,” said Mr Woodruff.
“However, direct flights and major sporting events including the ICC Cricket World Cup, continued to boost international growth from all regions, particularly Japan, China, India and Sri Lanka.”
“And despite a subdued domestic market, pleasingly, we also maintained solid growth.”
Approximately $53 million was reinvested in April to improve facilities at Melbourne Airport, including a new domestic terminal, transport hub, tri-generation plant and a 3.3 kilometre extension of Airport Drive, all on track for completion in the second half of 2015.
