Association of European Airlines: “The outlook for June, derived from weekly data, indicates a passenger market growth of about 8%, driven largely by Far Eastern traffic. Should it be confirmed by the final monthly data, this would be the first sign that the sector has recovered to pre-recession levels,” Association statement. Source: AEA, 08-Jul-2010.
