Perth Airport is currently Australia’s fastest growing capital city airport and the country’s fourth largest in terms of passenger movements. This year over 10 million passengers are expected to travel through the airport with a 10.9 per cent growth rate recorded during quarter one of FY10 within inter - national travel and a 5.8 per cent growth rate within domestic travel. Perth Airport’s passenger numbers have almost doubled within the last decade.Western Australia is the largest state in Australia (approximately five times the size of Texas), and with over 75% of its population living in the city of Perth, which is also the world’s second most isolated capital city; it is therefore no surprise that air transport is vital to the state.
