QAL Group passenger growth steadies in July

Passenger growth across Queensland Airports Limited’s (QAL) four airports has steadied following a strong 2018 financial year, with 757,245 passengers or 0.8 per cent fewer people welcomed and farewelled in July.

Townsville and Mount Isa airports grew two per cent and 7.8 per cent respectively in July, while Gold Coast Airport’s numbers softened 1.8 per cent. There was a slight drop of 52 people flying in and out of Longreach in the month.

The July result follows a 2.7 per cent increase in passengers across the group in the 2018 financial year – which was a record for QAL.
