ACI report confirms a healthy 2010

A 2010 Airports Council International (ACI) report reveals cargo rose strongly by 15.2 per cent as compared to 2009.

In the freight sector all regions showed a robust double digit increase led by Asia Pacific (+18.6 per cent) and Europe (+17 per cent). International freight was the driver of the airfreight recovery as total tonnage jumped by 20.5 per cent compared to 2009.

“GDP growth projections for this and the coming years are high, creating a positive outlook for demand for air transport,” ACI world director general Angela Gittens said. “This underpins the need to continue to expand and modernise airport infrastructure to maintain high standards of efficiency and customer service. Airports will be asked to finance these projects autonomously without public funds requiring private and public airports to be empowered to generate necessary returns on their investment.”
