Passenger volume at Melbourne Airport (MEL) in the Australian state of Victoria jumped 110%, in comparison with the previous year, in the financial year 2021/22.

Over the 12 months that ended on 30 June, 12,936,947 passengers used the airport’s four terminals, versus 6,169,823 a year earlier.

A total of 464,926 passengers used the airport’s international terminal in June, an increase of 26% from 367,681 in May.

However, compared with the same period last year, domestic passenger volumes decreased by nearly 7%, from 1,963,625 to 1,842,335, in June.

Melbourne Airport CEO Lorie Argus said: “As we welcome back more domestic travellers, we are giving our terminals a much-needed upgrade.

“This week we are proud to open new passenger amenities in Terminal 4, featuring new male and female bathrooms, all-gender toilets, an accessible toilet, an assistance animal relief area and a parents’ room complete with changing tables, microwave and a private feeding room.
