ForewordFOREWORDThis report provides an overview of domestic (including regional and charter)commercial aviation activity in Australia for the month of February 2013.The data cover revenue passengers carried by Australian-registered operators ofscheduled regular public transport services over Australian flight stages and fixed-wingcharter operators. These estimates include passengers carried between domesticairports on international flights operated by these carriers. The passengers carried referto traffic on board by stages.Estimates of passengers and aircraft movements for charter aviation are included inthis publication, where BITRE confidentiality standards are met.Individual routes shown are restricted to those with an average exceeding 8 000passengers per month where two or more airlines operate in competition. For themonth of February 2013 there were 58 such routes.Information on the total network for the month of February 2013 and on the RegularPublic Transport (RPT) network for the month of February 2013 is presented on page2, with estimates for the year ended February 2013 presented on page 3.Detailed information on the 58 individual routes can be found in the RPT summarypages 4–9 of this publication.The top ten airports in terms of RPT passenger movements are shown on page 10.Data on domestic RPT cargo movements at the top five cargo airports are provided onpage 11. The table includes cargo carried on passenger flights operated by the Qantasgroup (including Jetstar), Virgin Australia, Air North, Skippers and Skytrans as well asthe cargo carried by dedicated freighter aircraft operated by Australian Air Express andToll Priority.The long-term trends for the top ten competitive RPT routes are presented graphicallyon pages 12–21.Tables providing estimates of domestic charter aviation activity are shown on page 22.BITRE confidentiality standards restrict publication of detailed airport-level estimatesfor all Australian airports, with the exception of Perth Airport.A list of definitions can be found on page 23.This report was prepared by the Aviation Statistics Section of the Bureau ofInfrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics with data provided by airlines.Estimates are included where data were not available and data presented in thispublication may contain revisions to previously published data.iii
