AAPA: “Asia Pacific carriers are projecting further growth in aviation markets this year, with the introduction of new services and frequencies in the coming months. At the same time, Asian carriers are bracing themselves for new challenges, with sharply higher oil prices already pushing up the cost of air travel and adding to uncertainties over the outlook for continued growth in the global economy,” Andrew Herdman, AAPA Director General.
