IATA: “Signs of stability in the Eurozone economy should help to reduce pressure on global growth in the months ahead. But flatlining global business confidence and recent declines in global export orders do not bode well for trade growth in the months ahead. The outlook for air freight markets in the second half of 2013 remains fragile,” Source: Company statement, 30-Jul-2013.
