No turbulence at airport in December

Despite an exuberant, lengthy and number laden report at the Cairns Post the traffic numbers at Cairns Airport in December were so boring I almost wasn't going to post anything this month. There is not much different to last month, or the month before that, with consistent but somewhat slower growth from domestic routes than in recent years.

This is Y-o-Y monthly passenger growth over the last few years, domestic + international (ex transits), with a 12 month rolling average:

There is commentary this month that domestic passengers increased 4.2% despite slower capacity growth. This is consistent with reports elsewhere with Sydney also reporting improved load factors as the domestic airlines return to commercial sense and profitability.
