ACI Asia-Pacific: "With the encouraging passenger traffic data in January 2012, it looks like this positive trend will continue and it is worth noting that the Asia-Pacific region remains one of the drivers of the global passenger traffic growth. However, air freight traffic does not look so promising. Of course, the Chinese New Year is an important factor in the decline in January but we are concerned that the shroud of uncertainty is still hanging over the global air freight market,” Patti Chau, Regional Director.
