By Doug Newhouse |

The number of international passenger numbers at Melbourne Airport grew by 18% per cent in January to reach a record 630,979, exceeding the 600,000 level for the first time and increasing by 98,313 over last January.

The fastest-growing passenger origin markets included China (+33); Singapore (+25); Malaysia (+22%); New Zealand (+20%); India (+16%); and the US and UK with 115 increases respectively. Australian passenger numbers also grew by 19% last month. 

Melbourne Airport Ceo Chris Woodruff said that passengers appeared to be making the most of the various holiday periods, which included the Australian summer school holidays and an early start to the Chinese New Year celebrations.
