Auckland airport passenger numbers up

7:02 am on 24 July 2012

Auckland International Airport Ltd says passenger numbers in June rose by 11% compared with the same month last year.

However, it says the year on year increase is exaggerated due to June 2011 passenger numbers being impacted by cancellations due to the Chilean ash sloud.

Australian visitors grew by 20%, while visitor arrivals for the year ending June grew by 7%.
