According to International Air Transport Association (IATA), in January, freight tonne kilometres rose 6.9 percent yearon- year, indicating increased demand for global air cargo markets.

Additionally, during the month under review, available freight tonne kilometres slowed to 3.5 percent.

In particular, Middle Eastern carriers saw an 8.4 percent year-on- year boost in cargo volumes in January, while capacity surged 3.3 percent.
