Sydney Airport Traffic Performance July 2022

Tuesday 23 August 2022

Total passenger traffic in July 2022 was 2,835,000 passengers, down 26.3% on the corresponding period in 2019.

Domestic passenger traffic totalled 1,992,000 in July 2022, down 16.6% on the corresponding period in 2019. 844,000 international passengers passed through Sydney Airport in July 2022, down 42.2% on the corresponding period in 2019.

Sydney Airport CEO Geoff Culbert said: “The passenger recovery is encouraging but it continues to track ahead of the workforce recovery. ABS data released last week shows that aviation continues to be the most affected industry from an employment perspective, with air transport jobs 31% down on pre-COVID levels ³.

“Everyone across the industry is working hard to rebuild their teams, but with the ongoing labour shortages it's going to take time."
