DOMESTIC SKIES: Air Capacity in Australia

This year marks the return of our popular country by country air capacity statistics series. Every week The HUB provides statistics highlighting airline and airport activity in an individual domestic and international market. We take a look at last year’s schedule as a snapshot and compare seat capacity with the previous year, showing which airlines and airports are growing and which are constraining.

The data is all supplied by OAG Aviation using its OAG Schedules Analyser tool.
