Cheap Flights for Aussies Flying Domestic

New research shows that there are more Australians flying on domestic flights now that there are more budget airlines from which to choose.  The total number of flights in the past fiscal year was 55 million, according to the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics.  In fact, the number of Australians flying on domestic flights has increased 6% every year for the last ten years and they have airlines like Qantas, Virgin Australia, Jetstar, and Tiger Airways to thank for that.


Passenger growth has been steady each year since 2002, except for the period during the financial crisis that swept the globe.  As for airports, Sydney is still the busiest, with more than 24 million passengers during the past fiscal year.  Melbourne was next with over 21 million and then Brisbane with over 16 million.  The busiest route is the one between Sydney and Melbourne.  However, routes in and out of Perth have seen the biggest growth, thanks to the mining boom in the region.
