Airbus: Long-haul travel increasingly to and from 'aviation mega cities'

Airbus forecast (15-Jun-2015) long-haul air travel will increasingly be to, from or between aviation mega-cities - defined as cities with more than 10,000 daily international long-haul passengers - rising from 90% (0.9 million passengers a day) today to 95% (2.3 million passengers a day) by 2034. Aviation mega-cities are "centres of urbanisation and wealth creation" and will increase from 47 to 91 cities by 2034 with 35% of global GDP centred there. These mega cities are "already served well by air transportation and the existing route network will accommodate 70% of all traffic growth between now and 2034". [more - original PR]
