IATA: “Recent declines in business confidence have weakened the growth trend in air travel, and the pessimistic outlook continues to pose a threat to the airline industry. Leading indicators also point toward a further slowdown in world trade momentum, which could undermine passenger and freight demand in coming months.” Source: Company statement, 02-Aug-2012.
