2012 i believe brings optimism at our local airports.Today i will look at OOL.

OOL (Gold Coast) What can we expect or predict.

With nearly 6 million pax annually i believe OOL will grow slowly again this year.
Growth on domestic services may come from SYD and MEL once again.Tiger are planning a 2nd base from June 2012 possibly in Sydney.If this happens then you can be assured SYD-OOL flights will once again commence.
FIFO may well finally commence from OOL in 2012 most likely to mines in Central Queensland.Who and what we will just have to wait.
Internationally Air Asia X hopefully will increase back to daily again in 2012 .
Other carriers i am not so sure.Scoot is a possible but with 400 pax in a 777 getting out of OOL'S current runway may not be obtainable.
Trans tasman ops will most likely show some growth with all 3 carriers.

QANTAS will they or won't they come back to OOL.I believe they will come back later in 2012 with services to both SYD,MEL .

These are personally my thoughts and opinions only.
