AEA: “AEA’s preliminary figures for July, based on weekly reports, open a new panorama. The negatives are still very much in evidence, but on a reduced scale, with an indication for the month of minus 2.2%. The provisional July figures also show capacity reductions at a lower rate than in May/June, at around 3%, but at last sufficient to counteract the market decrease and drive a small improvement in load factor,” Association statement.
