International Passenger Traffic continues to grow

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Global passenger traffic started the year strong with year-over-year growth of over 6.4% for the month of January.

This comes after a rise of 4% in passenger traffic for 2013 as a whole. Most of the buoyant activity in passenger traffic stems from double-digit growth rates of over 10% in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. International travel continues to post robust growth with an increase of 7.8% whereas domestic traffic increased by 5.1% for the month of January.

“It seems to be business as usual for passenger traffic irrespective of the economic woes. In particular, international travel continues to burgeon in many markets. Several major airports located in the Brazil, Russia, India and China experienced double digit growth rates in January. South East Asian airports also posted strong gains on the month," said ACI World's Economics Director Rafael Echevarne.
