Structural changes in the airline industries have resulted in lower prices for consumers and thus more Australians travelling more often. The volume of aircraft movements and passengers carried has grown over the five years through 2014-15. Most major capital city airports are in the process of expansion or planning for expansion as capacity constraints become apparent. The Airport Operations industry has adapted to low-cost carrier structures by building terminals that are cheaper to operate and investing in labour-saving equipment.
