North America trails the world’s airports league

The international association of the world’s airports, Airport Council International (ACI), has reassured the air cargo world that airports are back on track in all places except North America.

Freight saw strong Asia Pacific and European results, contributing to the global growth by 6.8 per cent. The month-on-month averages indicate that the decline in freight traffic seen in Q3 has been replaced by a robust trend.

Asia Pacific’s international freight rose by nine per cent and domestic by 12 per cent, and Europe international increased by 11.4 per cent. Latin America had the strongest increase in domestic traffic (+16 per cent), whereas North America experienced -0.8 per cent traffic.
