Asian airport traffic jumped 9% in 2016

Airports in the Asia Pacific region experienced strong traffic growth in 2016.

The full-year data from Airports Council International (ACI), which was released this week, reveals a 9% jump in traffic across the region last year, compared to 2015. Much of this growth was driven by India’s fast-growing airports, including Kolkata (+21.2%), as demand for domestic air travel in the country soared.

But steady growth was also experienced at some of Asia Pacific’s largest airports, including Beijing Capital (pictured, +5.0%), Tokyo Haneda (+5.8%) and Tokyo Narita (+4.7%). Elsewhere, double-digit growth was experienced at Nanjing (+15.9%) and Busan (20.0%) airports.

The region’s full-year figures were boosted by an especially strong December, when Chinese and Indian growth drove an overall 9.6% jump in Asia Pacific airport traffic.
