Airbus expects Australia to have four so-called aviation mega-cities by 2033 as the growth in global passenger traffic results in new routes from local and overseas carriers.
The Toulouse-based manufacturer defines an aviation mega-city as those which have more than 10,000 long-haul passengers a day. Currently, Sydney and Melbourne are the only two inclusions on Airbus’s list of 42 mega-cities.
By 2033, there were expected to be 91 mega-cities around the world, with Brisbane and Perth (and also Auckland) forecast to join the list with more than 10,000 passengers a day hopping on a flights of more than 2,000nm.
The number of long-haul passengers travelling to, from or via mega-cities was forecast to rise from 800,000 a year currently to 2.2 million by 2033.
