Queenstown Airport records biggest increase in overseas arrivals in August

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Queenstown News

An increase in direct trans-Tasman flights led to a big jump in the number of Australian visitors arriving at Queenstown Airport in August.

The number of overseas visitors arriving in the Otago resort town increased by 7100 (or 22 per cent) in August 2019, compared with the same month last year, to reach 39,200, Stats NZ said.

It was the largest monthly gain on record for overseas visitor arrivals in Queenstown.
