The Aviation Barometer, published quarterly by Airports Company South Africa, has releases its Q3 aviation barometer.

The barometer provides an indication of current air travel trends in South Africa, based on the count of passengers using the network of nine airports owned and managed by the company in South Africa.

These figures compare arrivals and departures in the latest quarter with the same quarter in the previous year.

In summary, the Q3 Barometer shows:

• Airports Company South Africa’s nine airports handled more than 2.5 million arriving and departing passengers in the third quarter, a 5% increase

on the comparable period in 2016;

• The strongest performers were King Shaka International Airport and Cape Town International Airport, with increases of 7.9% and 6.6% respectively;

• The passenger figures for King Shaka International Airport was underpinned by an 8.7% rise in domestic arrivals and an 8.3% increase in departures, more than offsetting a decline of 3% in international passengers;
