Cairns Airport


A key change in Cairns is the growth of helicopter movements in recent years. In 2011 there were just over 14 000 helicopter movements at Cairns Airport. This grew to more than 19 000 in 2015. When flights within the region but outside the airport are also included, the 2015 figure rises to 22 000 flights. This primarily reflects growth in the tourism industry and the demand for joy flights.
