Dunedin International Airport Ltd has reported an almost 4% increase in the number of international passengers using the facility.

The company has released more details from the first six months of the 2012/2013 year.

The airport, which is half owned by the DCC, delivered improved revenue and an increased operating surplus, despite what it says is a challenging environment.

That environment resulted in a 0.8% drop in domestic passenger numbers.

But international seat capacity increased by 8%(eight percent), along with the increase in passengers.

That was despite a drop in the number of Australian visitors to New Zealand.

The company says the increase is an encouraging sign.
