IATA: Passengers Up 6.1%; Freight Up 3%

Sat Mar 03, 2007 3:09 am

Looks like aviation is a good business to be in after all  Smile

Worldwide passenger numbers increased by 6.1% in Jan07, compared to same time last year.
Middle East 19.8%
Africa 8.1%
N.America 6.6%
Europe 5.5%
Asia Pacific 5%
Latin America -8.7%

It's not clear where they draw the line between Latin America and North America given that, at least Mexico is part of both regions  Smile I am a bit surprised about the large decrease in Latin America given the latest increase in service from Europe to S.America (AF/TP/TAM), and SA's intention to start double-daily to GRU, amonst other events.
