“We’re thrilled to be part of Sydney’s Chinese New Year celebrations again and look forward to marking the Year of the Rooster at Sydney Airport,” Ms Mather said.

“China is our fastest-growing international passenger market, representing 7.4 per cent of total passengers. As our largest group of foreign inbound passengers, we’re working closely with our partners to deliver an airport experience that caters to our Chinese travellers.

“We’ve welcomed several new routes and additional services from China recently, and have seven airlines serving 14 mainland Chinese cities from this week. There will be up to 150 non-stop flights from greater China each week during this busy Chinese New Year period.”

This is also the China-Australia Year of Tourism and to celebrate the Year of the Rooster, customers will receive special offers from Sydney airport retailers including Heinemann Tax and Duty Free, Max Mara, Hugo BOSS, Think Australia, Think Sydney, Australian Way, Merino Collection WHSmith, Heineken House and The Bistro by Wolfgang Puck.

Roving promotional staff will also surprise lucky passengers with a Sydney Airport gift card.

In addition, the airport will be decorated in festive red and gold decorations in the T1 International terminal, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra will entertain with special performances and traditional lion dancing will also take place.
