AAPA airlines report 20.4% increase in Jul-2010 international pax

Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) reports (25-Aug-2010) the following international traffic highlights for its member airlines in Jul-2010:

  • Passenger numbers: 17.2 million, +20.4% year-on-year;
  • Passenger load factor:  82.7%, +5.4 ppts;
  • Cargo traffic (FTKs): +27.7%. [more] [more - Perspective]

AAPA: “The very high growth rates recorded in recent months, as a result of the surprisingly sharp V-shaped recovery, will obviously taper off as the economy stabilises and reverts to a more normal pattern of growth. Asia Pacific airlines are generally well placed to benefit from the improving business environment, and are making some measured additions to capacity and selective expansion of their route networks, although continuing uncertainties about the prospects for further growth in North America and Europe suggest a measure of caution,” Mr Andrew Herdman, AAPA Director General.
