The peak holiday period for Adelaide Airport in Australia has clearly begun as the first positive spike of the season is recorded.
Using data from RadarBox.com, we can see this trend, with the potential of this continuing onwards into the weeks ahead.
Without further ado, let’s get into the data…
Adelaide Airport Is Spiking for the Summer…
For June 13-20, the airport handled 300 movements, which is an increase of 19.05% compared to the same period last year.
In the context of pre-pandemic periods, this is 47 movements higher than the 2019 stated figure.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data from Adelaide, based on the seven-day rolling averages provided by the flight tracking company:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|May 16-23||262 movements||262 movements||284 movements||+8.40%|
|May 23-30||247 movements||260 movements||284 movements||+9.23%|
|May 30-June 6||256 movements||253 movements||283 movements||+11.86%|
|June 6-13||255 movements||249 movements||273 movements||+9.64%|
What we can see from the data is that in the four weeks period, the 2023 numbers have remained pretty consistent but have been better than 2022 and 2019’s numbers.
With the first spike of the peak Summer season already identified, all eyes will be on Adelaide Airport to see how long these spikes will last for and whether more growth can be recorded in the months ahead.
But for now, let’s wait and see to see what happens in those busy periods.
