74% of pre-COVID equivalent. In November 2022, total passenger volumes at Auckland Airport were 74% of the pre-COVID equivalent1 in the financial year to 30 June 2019, the last full year not impacted by the COVID pandemic. International passengers (excl. transits) were 67% of the pre-COVID equivalent in November 2018 with transit passengers and domestic passengers at 62% and 83% respectively.

 

Key Points:

 

• The international passenger recovery continued in November with international passenger movements for the month recovering to 67% of the pre-COVID equivalent, an increase from 61% recovery in October 2022;

 

• Short-haul international passenger movements were 79% of the pre-COVID equivalent, with Australia 77% and Pacific Islands 84%. Long-haul international passenger movements were 51% of the pre-COVID equivalent, up from a 46% recovery in the prior month. Demand on North American routes recovered to 86% of November 2018 with five airlines operating to eight airports including two new destinations (Dallas/Fort Worth and New York);

 

• Domestic recovery has fallen from 86% for October 2022 to 83% for November 2022 versus November 2018. There are two main reasons causing this decline. First, historically the month of November has approx. 2% more seat capacity than October but this year there wasn’t an increase in capacity between the two months. Second, load factors during November 2022 were slightly lower, declining 1.4ppts compared to the month prior; and

 

• Queenstown airport international passenger numbers continue to improve, now at 117% of November 2018, but domestic demand has fallen from the prior month to 92% of November 2018.
