Brisbane airport 2009 stats

Brisbane airport handled just over 19.1 million pax last calendar year a very small 0.4 % growth rate and aircraft movements declined from 183,500 in 2008 to 180,197 in 2009.These figures taken on a world scale considering the GFC in 2009 are quite good.

In 2008 Brisbane was ranked 69th busiest airport(pax) in the world and i would believe 2009 will show little change.So far this year Jan pax figures were down 5% but February was up about 4.4% over the corresponding months of 2009.With additional Airlines having started in March 2010 so far Pacific Flier,Phillipines and Tiger with more to come and a improving economy mayby the magic 20 million pax may be reached this year ?? but more likely it will be 2011.This will then propel Brisbane into the larger airports of the world. The common user terminal at the domestic will get a extra 2 bays this year and a larger terminal area upstairs for passengers.More car parks are being built at the domestic terminal area as well.
