Worldwide passenger traffic grows 5,6%
Thursday, 07 February 2008

Globall\ passenger traffic rose by 5,6% in 2007, the Airports Council International (ACI) reports.

ACI director-general, Robert J. Aaronson, says: “ International traffic has been the constant driver for passenger and freight traffic expansion this year, with passenger traffic peaking in March and November and freight in August. It is not surprising to see the impact of factors as diverse as volatile financial markets, slowing world economies and the cost of fuel. Consumer demand remains firm in many regions, which means that capacity and congestion are still key concerns as we seek to ensure service excellence for the over 4bn passengers who pass through the world’s airports each year.”

December 2007 results show the stable trend continued as airports worldwide maintained a steady 4% rise in overall traffic compared with December 2006, with international traffic once again driving overall growth in all regions (average 7,7% increase worldwide). As throughout the year, international traffic growth far surpassed domestic performance. Each of the largest traffic regions – North America, Asia Pacific and Europe – registered close to 7% in international growth. In the Middle East - where international traffic was up 16,6% and in Africa up 17,5% - new routes, new services and popular tourist destinations contributed to double-digit results.

For domestic traffic in December, the Latin America/Caribbean region posted the highest increase of 9,4% with Africa and Asia Pacific reporting 5% and 4% increases respectively. North America’s domestic traffic dropped by 1,2%, reflecting the impact of further capacity reductions in the US, high fuel prices and consumer reaction to economic uncertainty.
