An average of 29548 passengers arrives in Polokwane International every year since 2006, while about 29485 departs from the facility every year. As can be seen below, the movements have been very steady since 2006, not increasing too much and not decreasing much. These statistics includes all travellers on scheduled domestic, non-scheduled domestic, regional and international flights.
It can be seen from the bar chart shown below that scheduled domestic flights carry majority of the passengers to Polokwane International airport while passengers coming in unscheduled flights are on the minority. It is also interesting to note from the percentage distribution chart shown below that 80% of the passengers travel in 30% of the aircrafts. Passenger movements as expected are dominated by those travelling in scheduled domestic flights.
This is extremely vital information to know for planning purposes.
Seasonal indices for passenger movements present a very beautiful picture of the amount of people that can be expected in each month of the year. An index of "1" for a particular month indicates average movements while anything above "1" is above average and less than "1" is below average movements. The indices presented here tell a story of the behaviour/patterns of passenger movements on a monthly basis and again this is vital information for planning purposes.
The power of these indices is that if there is abundant historical data, they have an ability to filter out anomalies caused by once-off events like the Soccer World Cup while they will correctly reflect annual activities like school holidays.
