IATA: Asian travellers may be substituting trips to Europe with travel within the region

IATA stated (06-Sep-2016) that reports suggest that Asian passengers are being put off by terrorism in Europe. According to the association, traffic on the Europe-Asia route fell by 0.9% year-on-year in Jun-2016, and it has been the weakest-performing major route globally so far in 2016. IATA added that it appears that Asian travellers may be substituting to destinations closer to home: international traffic growth within Asia accelerated to a four month-high of 8.1% year-on-year in Jun-2016.
