Air pas­sen­ger traf­fic re­bound­ing

7 Days in Dubai - - BUSINESS -

The In­ter­na­tional Air Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion (IATA) said global pas­sen­ger traf­fic re­sults for Septem­ber show that de­mand grew 7 per cent com­pared to the same month in 2015, adding it was the strong­est year-over-year in­crease in seven months. Air­lines from the Mid­dle East and Asia Pa­cific posted the fastest traf­fic growth for the fourth con­sec­u­tive month, said IATA. “Septem­ber’s growth in pas­sen­ger de­mand was healthy. Im­por­tantly, this re­bound from Au­gust weak­ness sug­gests that travel de­mand is show­ing its re­silience in the af­ter­math of ter­ror at­tacks,” said Alexan­dre de Ju­niac, IATA’s Di­rec­tor Gen­eral and CEO.
