Launceston airport flying high
Launceston airport has recorded its strongest first quarter growth to date, by welcoming more than 300,000 travellers between July and September. That represents a five per cent growth on the same period last year. The Sydney-Launceston route proved the most popular. Launceston Airport General Manager, Paul Hogan, said: “Our buoyant first quarter figures are pleasing, particularly against a background of continued constrained domestic aircraft capacity. In Launceston, we continue to experience strong demand across all of our routes, and with the competitive commercial arrangements in place with our airlines, we are confident that more aircraft will be deployed to Launceston, the tourism gateway to Tasmania.” Last month, the airport was also named as a finalist in the 2018 Tasmanian Tourism Awards for the fourth time. Launceston airport facilitates travel for almost 1.4 million people every year.
