Air transport grows 14% in March compared to the previous year, Iata says

SAO PAULO-the global demand for air cargo transport, in tonnes-kilometre transported (FTK), grew 14% in March 2017 as compared to the same period in 2016, according to information disclosed this Wednesday, 3, by the international air transport Association (Iata). Already the global supply by air transport, measured in tonne-km (AFTK), increased 4.2% in March this year compared with the same month last year. With that, the overall occupancy rate of aircraft for cargo transport reached 47.4%, a high of 4.1 percentage points (p.p.) in a year. "March struck a robust first quarter with the biggest annual growth in air freight in six and a half years," he says, in a statement, the Iata Director General, Alexandre de Juniac. "The optimism is returning to the industry, but there is still a lot of lost ground to recover". To analyze the performance of the air transport by region, Iata highlights that, except for Latin America, all regions analyzed – Africa, Asia/Pacific, Europe, Middle East and North America-had an increase in demand in the third month of the year. In Latin American countries, the demand for air transport retreated 4.2 percent compared to March 2016, while supply decreased by 1.9%. The occupancy rate for the transport of loads retreated 0.8 percentage points, reaching 31.9%. The biggest growth in demand for freight transport in March was verified in Africa, with a high of 33.5 percent on annual basis, followed by Europe (+ 18.2%), Middle East (+ 16.3%), Asia/Pacific (+ 13.6%) and North America (+ 9.5%).
