  1. 1. Global passenger traffic rises 7.7% in October Freight growth slowing, but still 9.6%Geneva, 6 December 2010 – Passenger demand grew markedly in October 2010, withACI member airports reporting a solid 7.7 percent increase, as compared to October2009. International passenger traffic grew by a robust 9.9 percent while domestic trafficrose by 6.1 percent. For the first ten months of 2010, world passenger traffic increasedby 6.4 percent, with international traffic growing by 7.6 percent and domestic traffic risingby 5.4 percent, as compared to the same period in 2009.The international freight traffic growth trend continues, but at a weaker pace in October2010. Total freight handled worldwide in October 2010 grew by 9.6 percent compared toOctober 2009 with international freight rising by 12 percent and domestic freight by 3.9percent. The first ten months of 2010 showed total freight growing by 19.5 percent withinternational freight increasing by 25.1 percent and domestic freight rising by 9.3 percent.ACI World Economics Director Andreas Schimm comments, “Passenger growth is veryrobust and will most likely hold above 6 percent at year end which is excellent news aftera 2 percent drop in 2009. Looking at regional results what is striking is that growthcurves are converging. Growth in North America and Europe is accelerating whereas ithas been slowing down in Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Latin America-Caribbeanregions.“This narrowing of the significant spreads seen over the past 12 months is particularlyvisible in international traffic results. This month we see a mere 4 percentage pointsbetween North America (8.7) and Asia Pacific (12.5) and this performance contributes to 1
  2. 2. a continuation of the strong double digit international growth we have seen throughoutthe year.”Growth remains weak or negative in some key markets such as Japan, UK and Mexicoas well as at some US airports, but they are out-performing the previous lows. Russia,South Korea, Argentina and Brazil spearhead October results, while Shanghai continuesto outperform other Chinese airports driven by the World Expo. A number of Spanishairports have also reported very solid double-digit growth defying the flat nationaleconomy.For freight traffic, Schimm notes that the nearly 10 percent increase remains a positivesign. “October was the first month in 2010 allowing a comparison of worldwide trafficgrowth to a growth period in 2009. Double-digit growth rates are not sustainable over thelong run, of course, but it seems that growth can continue in a range between 5 and 10percent in the foreseeable future. As with passenger traffic, a narrowing spread ofgrowth figures indicates consolidation on a healthy level and underpins a positiveoutlook for the world economy for the next 6 months.”The two largest international air freight markets Asia Pacific and Europe saw solidincreases of 12.4 and 15.8 percent respectively for October 2010 over 2009, and for the10 month year-to-date period an increase of 27.5 and 23 percent respectively. Only theLatin America – Caribbean region recorded a decline in October (-1.06%).Schimm concludes, “It seems the industry is moving into the post-recovery phase withless peak growth but a broader base of growing markets underpinned by strongerdemand across all regions particularly in international traffic which bodes well for the restof the year and supports a positive outlook for 2011.”REGIONAL PASSENGER TRAFFIC HIGHLIGHTSAfrica: Strong passenger growth was reported in popular tourist destinations, withinternational traffic up by 10.7 percent. Positive results include Cairo (8.8%),Casablanca (12%), Hurghada (13%), Johannesburg (7.6%), Saint Denis (14.9%), Sharm 2

Good results were registered at several smallerairports across the region including Abidjan (6.8%), Antananarivo (18.5%), Dar EsSalaam (7.5%) and Luxor (10.6%).Asia Pacific: Across the region, international traffic grew by 12.5 percent and domesticby 8.6 percent, leading all regions in both categories. Global traffic leaders wereIncheon (26.3%) and Shanghai (28.9%), followed by strong results in other keydestinations including Hong Kong (11.9%), Manila (17.1%), Singapore (7.9%), Taipei(14%). Kuala Lumpur’s international traffic grew by 17.2 percent, whereas domesticdropped by 1.8 percent; Jakarta rose by 9.7%. Japanese airport traffic growth laggedbehind the regional boom, with Narita showing a modest 1.8% increase and Hanedareporting a 1.9% decline. Indian airports Hyderabad (13.8%) and Madras (14.7 %) ledresults, followed by New Delhi (7.4%) and Mumbai (4.3%).Europe: With a regional increase in international traffic of 9 percent as well as almost 6percent increase in domestic travel, most of the largest hubs saw solid growth –Amsterdam (8.2%), Frankfurt (8.5%), London Heathrow (7.2%), Madrid (5.4%), Paris(3.8%), Munich (9.1%), and Rome (11.5%). Double digit growth was reported by severalairports with over 1 million passengers including Antalya (26.6%), Barcelona (18.1%),Berlin (11.6%), Copenhagen (13.4%), Düsseldorf (11%), Lisbon (11.6%), Milan (11%),Moscow DME (15.7%), Moscow SVO (31.5%), Stockholm (11.4%) and Vienna (11.4%).Latin America & Caribbean: Overall results for the region profited from continuedstrong growth in international traffic of 11.7 percent. Key airports in the region reportgood results: Brasilia (4.8%), Cancun (10.7%), Lima (24.6%), Quito (8.9%), and both ofSao Paolo’s airports (CGH 3.3% and GRU 16%). Booming domestic traffic (43%) was akey contributor at Lima. International traffic was the driver at Sao Paulo GRU (19.3 %), inCancun (12 %) and in Buenos Aires EZE (6.9%). At Rio de Janeiro, despite stronginternational growth (27.8%), a notable drop in domestic traffic gave a negative totalresult of -3.3 percent. In Mexico City a 6.5 percent drop in international, despite a 1.5percent increase in domestic, gave a total negative result of -1.2 percent. 3
  4. 4. Middle East: Traffic growth in the region is still robust at 9.1 percent for internationaltraffic, with strong performance at several airports including Abu Dhabi (13.3%), Dubai(14.8%), Muscat (23.1%), and Tel Aviv (6%).
