IATA: “Annualised growth for passenger traffic between the low point in the market of mid-2009 and the end of the first quarter of this year was 10%. Growth between the end of the first quarter and September is just under 9% on an annualised basis. The softer economic conditions being seen in several regions have yet to cause a significant slowdown in passenger market growth which remains above historical trend of around 6%,” Source: IATA statement, 26-Oct-2010.
