Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Passenger traffic remains resilient but cargo hubs see volume growth weaken India becomes world’s third largest aviation market for passenger traffic London, 13 March, 2019 – During the the 11th Annual Airport Economics & Finance Conference & Exhibition in London, Airports Council International (ACI) World published its preliminary world airport traffic rankings covering passenger traffic, cargo volumes, and aircraft movements ACI has …
Last year, passenger traffic increased globally increased to 8.8 billion estimated 6% while shipments of air cargo increased by 3.2%.
In 2018, passenger traffic grew by 4.7% at 20 busiest airports around the world with1.5 billion passengers using these airports.
“It is heartening to see that global passenger traffic growth has remained resilient in the face of an increasingly tense and challenging geopolitical climate. With the cost of travel decreasing in many markets, and a burgeoning middle class growing in emerging markets, passenger traffic growth has remained irrepressible. Indeed, ACI’s global medium-term forecasts reveal growth in demand for air services between 2018 to 2023 will grow by almost 30%. This means many national governments face the predicament of demand outstripping available airport infrastructure. Aviation is strongly linked to the global economy and to local development, however, and the protectionist rhetoric that has swept several Western countries will continue to restrain growth in the efficient flow of people, goods and services,” she said. “The ongoing trade war between the United States and several of its closest trade partners was a shock for the industry and global supply chains”

Delta Air Lines’ CEO who is Atlanta airport’s dominant tenant, was against takeover of the state.
Ranking of top three passenger airports is still.
