Sydney Airport advised on 15 August that it had recorded a first half net profit of $17.3 million, down 90 per cent. Domestic passengers flying through Sydney fell by 1.5 per cent in the reporting period, but international travellers flying through Sydney rose by 1.9 per cent. Roy Morgan reported recently that 26.5 per cent of Australians had taken an overseas holiday in the past year, up from just 13.1 per cent in 2000-01, and Sydney Airport’s international traveller figures were helped by tens of thousands more Australians going overseas when compared to the previous corresponding period.
