written by australianaviation.com.au | November 13, 2009

Passenger numbers for the Queensland Airports Limited Group, which operates Gold Coast, Townsville and Mount Isa airports, increased by 11.25 per cent during October, lifting the group to a new record for the month.

During October, 609,059 passengers passed through the three airports, driven particularly by a 15.73 per cent increase in passengers through Gold Coast Airport as international services increased. Townsville saw a 1.93 per cent increase, while Mount Isa was lower by 14.66 per cent.

QAL managing director Dennis Chant said that the strong performance was a sign that the economy was improving. “Most significantly, we have now had back-to-back record months for the group in aggregate and that is a great sign that business confidence is returning,” he said.
