Published on : Friday, January 5, 2018

planeAccording to the preliminary figures revealed by the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) showing the number of international passengers flying on key carriers in November has seen a robust demand in both international air passenger and air cargo markets, reflecting the ongoing global economic upswing.

 

 

 

Boosted by strong business and leisure travel demand, the region’s airlines carried a combined total of 25.9 million international passengers in November, 9.3% more than the same month last year. Demand in revenue passenger kilometres (RPK) increased by 9.4% whilst available seat capacity expanded by 7.3%, leading to a 1.5 percentage point increase in the average international passenger load factor to 78.8% for the month.

 

 

 

Mr. Andrew Herdman, AAPA Director General commented that with business and leisure travel demand spurred by steady growth in the global economy, the first eleven months of the year saw a healthy 6.0% increase in the number of international passengers carried by Asian airlines to a combined total of 288 million. Mr. Herdman added that looking forward, the demand for Asian carriers will remain positive and meanwhile the region’s airlines remain focused on effectively managing capacity in response to evolving patterns of market demand as well as improving operational efficiency
