Total passenger traffic in October 2022 was 2,961,000 passengers, down 25.5% on the corresponding period in 2019.
Domestic passenger traffic totalled 2,044,000 in October 2022, down 19.6% on the corresponding period in 2019. 916,000 international passengers passed through Sydney Airport in October 2022, down 36.1% on the corresponding period in 2019.
Sydney Airport CEO Geoff Culbert said: “For the second consecutive month our international passenger recovery is sitting at 64%, relative to the same month in 2019. The lack of seat capacity into and out of Australia is constraining growth, and to see a sustained recovery in our tourism market and visitor economy we need to unlock more capacity as quickly as we can.”
