IATA: “The recent fall in business and consumer confidence, the stagnation of international trade, and the still high level of the jet kerosene price, removes a lot of the positive support for air travel growth. We would expect to see air travel growth slowing in the next few months. Now that international trade has stopped growing a strong near term renewal in air freight growth seems unlikely,” Source: IATA, 01-Sep-2011.
