International Air Transport Association (IATA) global passenger traffic results for May showed demand, measured in revenue passenger kilometres, rose 6.1 percent compared to the same month in 2017.

This also presented a slight pickup from six percent year-over-year growth for April this year. Capacity climbed 5.9 percent and load factor rose 0.1 percent to 80.1 percent.

Alexandre de Juniac, CEO, IATA, elaborated, "May was another solid month in terms of demand growth. As had been expected, we saw some moderation, as rising airline costs are reducing the stimulus from lower airfares.”

He noted jet fuel prices in particular are expected to be up nearly 26 percent this year compared to 2017 but, nevertheless, the record load factor for May signified strong demand for air connectivity.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced global passenger traffic results for October showing that demand rose 7.2 percent compared to the same month in 2016.

In September, freight tonne kilometres soared 9.2 percent year-on-year compared to the corresponding month in 2016, according to International Air Transport Association (IATA).

International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects 7.8 billion passengers to travel in 2036, a nearly double the four billion air travellers expected to fly this year.

In August, freight tonne kilometres soared 12.1 percent year-on-year and available freight tonne kilometres rose 4.7 percent compared to the corresponding month in 2016, according to International Air Transport Association (IATA).

International Air Transport Association (IATA) and leading international organisations have recently released a new report, under the title Aviation Benefits.

International Air Transport Association (IATA) revealed that in May, global revenue passenger kilometres rose 7.7 percent over the same month in 2016, which although slower than the 10.9 percent increase observed in April, it is ahead of the five- and 10-year average growth rates.

Global passenger traffic results released by International Air Transport Association (IATA) demonstrated strong growth in passenger demand in February.
