Key insights from PATAmPOWER

Flights from Australia to China to see solid growth in 2017


 
Scheduled flights from Australia to all destinations are expected to grow by 3.2 percent this year compared to 2016 with the growth driven mainly by increased traffic on routes to New Zealand, Singapore and China. Although flights to New Zealand will witness relatively modest growth in 2017, the destination will still top the chart with a 23 percent share of total flight frequencies. Indeed, flights from Australia to China are expected to reach the strongest growth of 30.8 percent this year. Other destinations such as Singapore (4.3%), Hong Kong SAR (4.6%) and Malaysia (3.8%) are also predicted to welcome more flights from Australia this year.
