Recovery in New Zealand domestic air passenger numbers

Almost a year ago I posted graphs of domestic passenger numbers through AKL, WLG and CHC airports that clearly showed the impact of the start of domestic (cabotage) services by Pacific Blue and the subsequent impact of the economic recession. I have continued to update this data and the graphs now show growth returning to the New Zealand domestic market.

Recent news from: Air New Zealand on 25 May 2010 that it will be boosting domestic capacity by 3.8% for the Northern Winter 2010 schedule season; Jetstar, which is reported by the NZ Herald on 5 June 2010 to be adding a seventh A320 to its New Zealand-based fleet, and Pacific Blue which is reviewing its New Zealand domestic operation, however, suggests that the supply side of the New Zealand domestic air transport market will be in for some changes.

Delhi is an ideal place for tourist. Delhi is also very famous among UK travelers. They usually prefer direct flights to Delhi and cheap flights to Mumbai to enjoy heritage sites in India.
