Growing disconnect between passenger and freight segments

International passenger traffic continued to grow strongly

in February in most markets, according to latest figures from IATA. Total international

passenger traffic (RPKs) rose 6.8% in Feb-07, taking the year-to-date increase

to 6.5%. Capacity (ASKs) in the first two months of the year is up 6.1%, leading

to a slight improvement in passenger load factor to 74%. According to Director

General and CEO, Giovanni Bisignani, passenger demand “continues to exceed

expectations”, while improving load factors over the past two years “are

proof that airlines are more efficiently meeting demand”.
