Melbourne Airport Soars Past Five Million Passengers

Melbourne Airport has seen international passenger figures lift past five million in the previous 12 months, for the first time in the airports history.

The increase in passenger numbers flowing through Melbourne Airport has been attributed to a strong 10% lift in the international market for the first quarter of 2009/2010, with passengers hailing from countries such as China and India. For the year ending September 2009, Melbourne Airport international passengers numbers rose to 5.03 million with overall passenger figures up by approximately 3%.

Chris Woodruff, Melbourne Airport chief executive, says that airlines are responding the increased demand already, with Singapore Airlines offering daily Melbourne-Singapore A380 flights which will be bolstered by Qatar Airways and V Australia set to offer services to Melbourne in December.
