IATA: “Air freight markets closely follow developments in business confidence. Business confidence has stalled in 2013, and air freight growth has done much the same. It is unclear – as uncertainty remains around Eurozone debt problems and the impacts of the fiscal cuts in the US – if business confidence will start to decline in coming months. However, current levels are still above the downturn during mid-2012 and export orders continue to signal expansion, suggesting that air freight demand should receive support in the coming months.” Source: Company statement, 29-May-2013.
