IATA: “Unfortunately the Japanese earthquake and tsunami has brought a further shock that will depress the March data. Japan generates 6-7% of global travel, 10% of revenues, and significant freight flows. Many are suggesting that reconstruction will generate a significant upturn in the economy, and in demand for transport. However, before that takes place there are several months at least of further decline ahead,” Source: Company statement, 29-Mar-2011.
