Perth Airport says 97% drop in passenger numbers could take years to recover from
Updated figures from Perth Airport show passenger numbers have fallen significantly as a result of coronavirus-related restrictions.
International and interstate passengers are down 97 percent in April – compared to the same time last year.
Total passenger numbers fell more than one million last month.
Speaking with Gareth Parker on Mornings, Perth Airport CEO Kevin Brown said the drop has forced the closure of all retail outlets – and forced partial or complete closure of some terminals – with only T2 and T4 fully operational.
It’s estimating a revenue loss of around $100 million.
Mr Brown says it could take years to recover the passenger numbers seen before the COVID crisis hit.
