ACI: "The growth scenario continues to be intact and we expect this anomaly to be a unique case as the volcano seems to have gone dormant, and operating procedures for similar situations in the future have been improved allowing for more flexible operations … International freight is still in catch-up mode continuing to provide hope for a sustained and broad economic recovery,” Andreas Schimm, Director of Economics for ACI World.
