The International Air Transport Association reported that demand for air travel rose 6.2% in February as people traveled to celebrate the Chinese New Year. International travel demand in the Asia-Pacific region climbed 10.4% over 2014 levels, when the holiday was celebrated in January.
The International Air Transport Association reported that global airline traffic increased by 5% for September on a year-over-year basis. "We are seeing a more positive environment for air travel demand, based on rising business confidence, a strong increase in export orders in September and better performance of key emerging markets," said Tony Tyler, CEO of the IATA.
Global air traffic increased in April, boosted by passenger demand in emerging markets such as Africa, the Middle East and Asia, according to the International Air Transport Association. "Passenger demand continued to grow in April, extending the positive trend that has been developing since late 2012," said Tony Tyler, IATA director general and CEO.
Global airline traffic rose by 5.9% in March on a year-over-year basis, according to the International Air Transport Association. "Mature markets are seeing relatively little growth while emerging markets continue to show a robust expansion," said Tony Tyler, IATA director general and CEO.
Passenger demand for global air travel rose 3.7% in February as compared to the same month last year, the International Air Transport Association said. "February's performance was good news. Demand for air travel continues to rise on economic optimism and improved business confidence," said Tony Tyler, director general and CEO of IATA.
