Market summaries

Sydney may be spectacular, but we don't rest on our laurels.

We're striving to deliver a world-class airport experience for our passengers and visitors - and make Sydney Airport one of the best airports in the world.

Australia’s only global city

As Australia's gateway, we welcome more international visitors than any other Australian airport. We have 42 million business and leisure passengers flowing through our terminals each year, and we host 150,000 visitors every day.

We mean business

Our city’s iconic beauty and economic importance ensures Sydney Airport continues to flourish as the world’s 31st busiest airport.

Our airport benefits from Sydney’s cachet and powerhouse allure: Australia’s largest city boasts the presence of global corporate giants, one of the fastest growing financial markets in Australasia, and is home to the country’s dominant service sector.

In turn, Sydney Airport gives back to the city’s economy - perfectly positioned only 8km from the Sydney Central Business District. The airport precinct employs more than 29,000 people and generates a total of 306,700 jobs for the people of Sydney. Overall, our operations are contributing more than $30 billion to the NSW economy.

We have the big picture

We don’t just let our passengers pass us by.

We analyse travel patterns of more than 100,000 daily passengers passing through the doors of our domestic and international terminals to provide our airline partners with invaluable insights such as:

  • how many international passengers are direct visitors to our iconic city
  • inbound and outbound travel patterns
  • purpose of visit for international travellers
  • international nationality split
  • new route opportunities
  • how these trends have changed over the last decade
