Sydney airport has reported a 3.1% year-on-year increase in overall passenger numbers to 3.1 million for April.
The airport's international passenger numbers grew by 1.9% to 1.02 million, while its domestic passenger numbers rose by 3.7% to 2.07 million.
Sydney airport chief executive Kerrie Mather says: "Singapore, Thailand, China and Korea were our strongest performing nationalities over the month. We continue to benefit from strong demand from our Asian neighbours and it's pleasing to see the results and positive feedback from some of our Asian focused initiatives."
The airport says China Southern will serve the Guangzhou-Sydney route using Airbus A380 in October, while Garuda will use its new Boeing 777-300ER on the Jakarta-Sydney route in the same month, replacing its existing Airbus A330-200 service. Meanwhile, Japan Airlines will fly its Boeing 787 from Tokyo to Sydney on 1 December.
