The International Airlines industry has experienced strong growth over the five years through 2015-16, largely driven by increased passenger numbers. This has been the result of growing tourist numbers from nearby Asian nations, which have boosted inbound passenger volumes. Industry revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 4.2% over the five years through 2015-16, to reach $17.6 billion. The growing popularity of Australia as a tourism destination has benefited international airlines and given newer entrants the chance to capitalise on growing tourism markets.
The International Airlines industry transports passengers or freight by air over regular routes and on regular schedules. This includes any flights that either end or originate internationally.
