AEC was engaged by Townsville Enterprise Limited to undertake an Economic Impact Assessment of air route services for North Queensland. The analysis included:

  • A review of passenger movements and routes.

  • Cost benchmarking to provide context for understanding the relative air connectivity of North Queensland.

  • Primary research undertaken to understand the travel behavior of local residents and the importance of air connectivity to inbound tourism.

  • Input-Output modelling to estimate the additional economic activity that would be supported in North Queensland through additional tourist visitation given improved air travel affordability

The findings were used to support a submission to the Senate inquiry.
