  • Premium traffic:
  • Economy traffic:
    • Total international: +3.1%;

IATA: “Looking ahead, the soft demand environment that has weakened air travel growth over recent months is showing some signs of stabilizing. Although world trade growth remains slow, the decline in business confidence seen throughout the third quarter has now reversed, with current levels indicating stability in the business environment in the months ahead. Consequently, we would expect the downward pressure on growth in air travel, particularly in premium markets, to stabilize over coming months.” Source: Company statement, 18-Dec-2012.
