IATA: “Business confidence improved again in November, reaching levels which indicate stability in the business environment in the months ahead. This could provide support to air freight demand in the coming months, beyond the current boost associated mostly with the holiday season. However, global economic growth remains weak and that will likely keep the demand environment for air transport fragile in the months to come. On the positive side, airlines are keeping load factors high by limiting capacity growth, which should help financial performance.” Source: Company statement, 09-Jan-2013.
