Market Commentary

Jet: Asia-Pac airlines see passenger growth

May 26, 2016

Airlines in the Asia-Pacific region continued to witness steady growth in international air passenger demand in April. In contrast, demand from cargo markets remained weak, reflecting lackluster global trade conditions, preliminary data from the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines showed late Wednesday.

"During the first four months of the year, Asia Pacific airlines saw international passenger numbers increase by a healthy 6.9% to an aggregate total of 97.1 million. Passengers are benefiting from greater value than ever with competitive airfares and ever expanding consumer choice of products and services," said AAPA Director General Andrew Herdman.
