ACI: “The black ink in all three freight categories for the first time since Jul-08 is the best traffic news of the month. This is welcome positive progress coming on the heels of a steady narrowing of the negative gap with 2008 traffic results. This pattern mirrors the ‘down-flat-up’ curve we have seen in passenger traffic over the past few months… A word of caution. This is not a sharp turning point, and even if positive growth continues in November and December, we are still likely to see a negative overall result for 2009 of about 10%.” Angela Gittens, Director General ACI World.
