Released 2nd August 2017

Key points from the report on air freight markets in June:

Global freight tonne kilometres (FTKs) grew by 10.4% year-on-year in H1 2017 - its strongest start in 7 years.

Industry drivers continue to indicate that the best of the cyclical growth upturn may now have passed. Nonetheless, the strong upward trend in seasonally adjusted (SA) freight traffic has reasserted itself.

African airlines topped the int'l FTK growth chart in H1 2017, alongside robust growth for the major regions.

The upward trend in demand has continued to outpace that of capacity, which is supporting the SA load factor.
