Post by Janey on Mon Feb 14, 2011 4:44 am

The airline industry consensus forecast released by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) indicates that by 2014 there will be 3.30 billion air travelers, up by 800 million from the 2.50 billion in 2009. By 2014 international aviation will handle 38 million tonnes of air cargo, up 12.50 million tonnes from the 26 million tonnes carried in 2009.
China will be the biggest contributor of new travelers. Of the 800 million new travelers expected in 2014, 360 million (45%) will travel on Asia Pacific routes and of those 214 million will be associated with China (181 million domestic and 33 million international). The United States will remain the largest single country market for domestic passengers (671 million) and international passengers (215 million).
