Middle East Air Travel Climbs 12.5%
Air travel in the Middle East bounced back from 0% growth earlier this year to 12.9% growth last month, due to higher demand on Asia and Europe routes. The International Air Transport Association reported that the improved results in the Middle East was the only bright spot among global airlines – passenger demand was down 7.2% worldwide compared with the same period last year.
Regionally, airlines are offering big discounts to stimulate demand and adding new aircraft as part of their ongoing expansion campaigns. Emirates Airlines and Etihad Airways were among the fastest growing airlines in the world due to their expansion campaigns, as demonstrated by airport passenger traffic numbers. Abu Dhabi International Airport passenger traffic increased 8.1% compared to last June and Dubai International Airport was up 8.1%.
