ICAO forecasts 6.4% rise in 2010 passenger traffic

ICAO reports (13-Jul-2010) the following scheduled traffic forecast for airlines of ICAO member states:

ICAO: “Traffic for Asia Pacific airlines should grow considerably faster than the global average, due to better economic prospects in states such as China and India, where aviation activity is expected to expand more rapidly. Middle East, Africa and Latin America regions will also enjoy higher traffic growth as economic conditions improve. North American airlines will grow slower than the world average because of lingering economic weaknesses. The financial performance of the world’s airlines is expected to improve in 2010 as traffic rebounds,” Source: Company statement, 14-Jul-2010.
