IATA: “The outlook for the next few months still looks weak. Air travel has yet to show any such weakness. However, our analysis still suggests the fall in air freight and the declines in business and consumer confidence are precursors to a significant slowdown in the growth of air travel.” Source: Company statement, 31-Oct-2011.
