Global passenger traffic grew 5.2 per cent in June compared with the previous year, according to the latest IATA data.

Global passenger traffic grew 5.2 per cent in June compared with the previous year, according to the latest IATA data.

However, the upward trend in seasonally-adjusted traffic has moderated since January.

June capacity increased by 5.6 per cent, and load factor slipped 0.3 percentage points to 80.7 per cent.

Demand for domestic travel climbed by 5.7 per cent year-on-year while demand for international travel also rose by 5 per cent compared to June 2015.

“The demand for travel continues to increase, but at a slower pace. The fragile and uncertain economic backdrop, political shocks and a wave of terrorist attacks are all contributing to a softer demand environment,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s director general and CEO.
