Monkeys and airport data

Cairns Airport backed up after a strong performance in December with even better numbers in January. Again this wasn't just restricted to Cairns with other airports also reporting big numbers above previous growth trends:


JanuaryDomesticInternational  Total
Cairns8.9%19.1%10.2%
Gold Coast9.1%11.9%9.5%
Sydney6.2%9.5%7.5%
Auckland10.3%9.3%9.7%


However we also need to remember that this is the time of year when the Chinese lunar new year can distort trend analysis. January last year had been a rare negative month for Cairns because of this with a late new year. Year of the monkey still fell in February this year but a few weeks earlier towards January.
