China Southern Airlines is targeting an 8.9% year-on-year growth in passenger numbers to 87.9 million and an 8.1% growth in cargo volume to 1.2 million tonnes in 2012, according to Caixin reports. China Southern expects weak growth in the international market with the downturn in freight to continue in 2012. The carrier also expects China’s domestic aviation growth rate to slow down in line with the nation’s economic environment.
