Middle Eastern Air Traffic Demand Increased by 10.8% in March.

In March, Middle Eastern airlines saw a 10.8 percent increase in passenger demand year-on-year, while the global aviation sector increased by 13.9% year on year.

According to International Air Transport Association (Iata) data, regional carriers experienced the highest year-on-year growth of 19.9%, with significant expansion in the Middle East-Europe market. March capacity increased by 10.6% year on year.

“Total global demand, measured in revenue passenger kilometers (RPKs), was up 13.8% from March 2023. Total capacity, measured in available seat kilometers (ASK), increased 12.3 percent yearly. The March load factor was 82 percent.

Willie Walsh, Iata’s director-general, stated that the travel demand is strong and is expected to continue into the peak northern summer travel season.We must have enough capacity to meet this demand while also providing passengers with a hassle-free travel experience. That means rapidly resolving supply chain issues and ensuring that airports and air traffic management are fully staffed and operating at peak efficiency. While airlines are prepared to provide customer care and assistance when operational issues arise, they are fed up with bearing the cost of delays and cancellations caused by poor preparation in other parts of the value chain,” Walsh stated.
