IATA has called for a “partnership approach” to building the global infrastructure necessary for aviation to continue supporting economic and social development.

The association has released its first 20-year passenger demand forecast, projecting that by 2034, total passenger numbers will reach 7.3 billion – more than double the 3.3 billion expected to fly this year.

“To meet that demand and enable aviation to deliver its economic and social benefits, investment is needed to alleviate bottlenecks in the air and on the ground,” said IATA’s CEO Tony Tyler.

According to IATA, the industry must focus on: rigorous cost-benefit analysis; constant engagement with stakeholders; right design structure; good governance; and credible, independent economic regulation.
