Asia- Pa­cific car­ri­ers saw cargo de­mand grow by 5.2% year-on-year. The strength of this per­for­mance is ex­ag­ger­ated by a com­par­i­son to a par­tic­u­larly weak April 2013. On­go­ing weak­ness in Chi­nese manufacturing ac­tiv­ity is likely to im­pact air freight de­mand in the com­ing months, and ex­port vol­umes in emerg­ing Asian mar­kets have been in con­tin­u­ous de­cline through­out 2014. Ca­pac­ity rose 7.8%. Mid­dle East­ern car­ri­ers re­ported that air cargo de­mand ex­panded 8.7% com­pared to the pre­vi­ous April. This is slightly slower growth com­pared to pre­vi­ous months, but still eas­ily the strong­est growth of any re­gion. Car­ri­ers are ben­e­fit­ting from the up­swing in de­vel­oped economies, and in­creased vol­umes from emerg­ing mar­kets in Asia and Africa. Ca­pac­ity was up 8.1%.
