Mideast air freight market grew 8.6% in April

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has said the global air freight market has seen a modest growth of 1.4% in April, which helped to offset the 2.6% decline recorded in March compared to the year-ago period. Middle East carriers saw their freight business expand by 8.6%, compared with April 2012, IATA said. "While this is a slowdown from the year-to-date growth rate of 11.2%, it was still the second highest of any region and the opening of new routes to developing economies will drive growth for the foreseeable future," it said.
