IATA: “Prospects for 2011 are quite positive. In January, the confidence of manufacturing and service businesses, measured across major economies by Markit/JP Morgan, rose to its highest level since April 2006. This suggests that world trade expansion is likely to continue and air freight operations will benefit from the carriage of goods shipped by air to fulfil final consumer demand,” Source: IATA, 28-Feb-2011.
