AAPA: “Whilst the outlook for continued regional and global economic growth remains positive, the lingering effects from the Japanese earthquake will continue to have an impact on patterns of travel demand in the second quarter of the year. More generally, we remain very concerned by the continued rise in oil prices, which are already pushing up the cost of travel and threatening to undermine global economic growth,” Mr Andrew Herdman, AAPA Director General.
