Growth is now more in line with domestic trends being reported at other major airports. The slower growth is also consistent with the renewed capacity discipline from the airlines. Total flights and seats (international & domestic) were down by 2.5% and 1.4% respectively on the previous year.
International passenger numbers were down by 5.1% on the previous year but there is a note that volcanic ash in Japan may have reduced these numbers by an estimated 5%. So that may even be a slightly improving outlook at international from previous heavy falls or it could be that G20 blip.
