Global passenger traffic grew 5.7 per cent in June compared with the previous year, according to the latest IATA data.

Demand for domestic travel rose 6.5 per cent on June 2014 figures, stronger than the 5.3 per cent surge in demand for international travel.

The Asia-Pacific region saw the biggest increase in demand, growing 6.8 per cent compared to the previous 12 months.

However, this was down from the 9.3 per cent rise recorded in May.

Cargo demand continued to slow in June, rising by just 1.2 per cent compared to a year ago. Tony Tyler, IATA’s CEO, said that the freighter market is stagnating and the remainder of 2015 holds “mixed signals.”
