More than 700,000 people flew through Queensland Airports Limited’s (QAL) four ports in April – the highest number since January 2020.
The 707,862 people who flew through Gold Coast, Townsville, Mount Isa and Longreach airports is just 1.4 per cent less than the amount who travelled through in April 2019 – suggesting the airports have almost returned to pre-COVID-19 passenger volumes.
Passenger numbers at Mount Isa and Longreach airports are approaching pre-COVID-19 levels, as confidence in regional air travel continues to strengthen.
Passenger numbers at Queensland Airports Limited (QAL) ports were heavily impacted by COVID-19 travel restrictions in 2020, with 5.7 million fewer passengers than the year before.
While there was a significant recovery in passenger numbers when the Queensland border re-opened to visitors on 1 December, the growth slowed when the Queensland Government declared Sydney areas as hotspots.
