Global Air Traffic Up In 2007 – IATA

31 May 2007

International air passenger traffic rose by 6.7 percent in the first four months of the year, driven by a relatively strong global economy, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said on Wednesday.

Cross-border freight traffic was up a more sluggish 2.6 percent compared to the same period a year ago as carriers faced heavy competition from other types of transport, IATA said in a statement.

Middle East airlines saw the strongest growth with a 17.6 percent passenger demand increase and 12.2 growth in freight. Those in Latin America saw a 1.6 percent decline in passenger traffic and a 5.5 percent drop in freight.
