At the beginning of the five-year period, domestic airlines faced tough challenges, with deteriorating global economic conditions causing a drop in industry revenue in 2008-09 and 2009-10. A high Australian dollar for part of this period prompted travellers to make international travel plans instead of travelling domestically, as locations abroad gained greater appeal compared with traditional domestic tourism regions. At the same time, some business travellers abandoned air travel in favour of teleconferences and other forms of electronic communication.
