IATA: “The demand environment for air travel continues to improve, suggesting there could be further acceleration in air travel growth before the end of the year. Business confidence is rising, there was a strong increase in export orders in September which suggests a pickup in world trade growth, and performance of key emerging markets like China appears to be picking up,” Source: Company statement, 31-Oct-2013.
