AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2000 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Sydney Airport, Australia is expected to experience its busiest day of operation on 2 October with about 40,000 passengers expected to pass through the facility.

Some 1,070 flights are expected to depart from the domestic and international terminals, which exceeds the previous record by about 100 flights. The high number of passengers is due to a combination of the end of school holidays in the state of New South Wales, as well as the end of the Olympics period, with a mass exodus of tourists expected.

A spokesperson for the airport said that some 800,000 passengers had used the international terminal during the Olympics period and that the challenge was now to `give Olympic visitors a smooth and efficient farewell from the airport` according to The Associated Press.
