Key points from our report on air passenger markets in June:

  • Industry-wide revenue passenger kilometres increased by 7.8% year-on-year in June, up from 6.0% in April.
  • The first six months of the year produced growth of 7.0% – a robust, above-trend performance, but down on that of the same period in 2017. This is a pattern we continue to expect to play out over the course of the year overall.
  • Carriers based in Africa and the Middle East posted the fastest international RPK growth rate this month. Of the main domestic markets, India again led the way with double-digit RPK growth for the 46th consecutive month.
