September 2020 Monthly traffic update

• 76.9% Auckland Airport total passenger volumes decreased by 76.9% in September 2020 versus last year. International passengers (excl. Transits) were down 96.9%, transit passengers were down 94.5% and domestic passengers were down by 53.3%.

 

Key Points:

 

• The decline in total passengers for September 2020 reflects the impact of the travel restrictions imposed by the New Zealand Government in response to COVID-19. The closure of the New Zealand border from 20 March 2020 to all but New Zealand citizens and permanent residents has had a significant impact on international services.

 

• Domestic passenger numbers in September 2020 were 63.4% up on August 2020 reflecting the change in the country’s alert levels at the end of August. On 31 August Auckland moved down to Alert Level 2 with the rest of New Zealand.

 

• Air New Zealand resumed flying all its Auckland domestic routes when alert levels were reduced on 31 August 2020. Jetstar Airways resumed its domestic services from 17 September 2020 when physical distancing requirements on domestic air travel were lifted.

•  68.6% Auckland Airport total passenger volumes decreased by 68.6% in October 2020 versus last year. International passengers (excl. Transits) were down 97.2%, transit passengers were down 92.1% and domestic passengers were down by 34.9%.

 

Key Points:

 

• Domestic passenger numbers in October 2020 were 47.9% up on September 2020 reflecting the easing of physical distancing requirements on domestic air travel in September and Auckland joining the rest of New Zealand at Alert Level 1 from 8 October 2020.
