Air Freight Growth Recovers Slightly in April, Up 4.1%

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) released data for global air freight markets showing that demand rose 4.1% in April 2018, compared to the same period the year before. This was up from the 1.8% growth in annual demand recorded in March 2018. Freight capacity grew by 5.1% year-on-year in April 2018. This was the second time in 21 months that capacity growth outstripped demand growth. After a sharp fall in March 2018, to a 23-month low, global air freight volumes recovered slightly in April 2018. The pace at which demand is growing, however, remains significantly slower than in much of 2017.
