CAPA Cen­tre for Avi­a­tion to­day of­fers its lat­est ex­clu­sive in­fo­graphic, pre­sent­ing in­sight from its own data and ex­ter­nal sources. CAPA this week takes a closer look at the grow­ing global avi­a­tion mar­ket, with an added fo­cus on the South Pa­cific re­gion. In Aug 2018, global ca­pac­ity in­creased 5.6% year-on-year and is up by 750,000 seats from Jul. Over the past 12 months, 17 coun­try pairs were con­nected for the first time - the Rus­sia-Saudi Ara­bia avi­a­tion mar­ket added the most ca­pac­ity with the ad­di­tion of 12,600 seats - and 371 new air­port pairs were con­nected for the first time. Specif­i­cally, for the South Pa­cific, the re­gion will see ca­pac­ity in­crease 1.4% year-on-year in Aug 2018, though a slight de­crease of 2.7% since Jul. Fifty-five per­cent of flights in the South Pa­cific will be op­er­ated by a non-al­liance air­line, fol­lowed by oneworld and Star Al­liance with 23% and 18.5% of flights, re­spec­tively. Twenty new air­port pairs were launched in Aug 2018 with al­most 15,000 seats.
