11 August, 2019

Sunshine Coast Airport handled (09-Aug-2019) 1.26 million passengers in FY2018/2019, an increase of 5.7% year-on-year. Sunshine Coast Airport CEO Andrew Brodie attributed the record growth to the introduction of additional services and the opening up of new markets, commenting: "One of the most significant wins in the last 12 months has been the additional daily Qantas service from Sydney, which is ideally timed to attract international visitors seamlessly to the Sunshine Coast". He added: "These services also provide the opportunity for local residents to fly out of their local airport and conveniently connect to outgoing international services, as well as benefiting businesses needing to attract or connect with clients across Australia and overseas".
