Mideast freight volumes saw robust growth in June

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has said Middle Eastern airlines recorded a continued increase in demand on freight services, with volumes growing in June by 12.7% year-on-year. "The consistent high growth in recent years, as the region's carriers take advantage of the geographical position of the Middle East, has led to a substantial increase in its share of world air freight," said IATA. Globally, the figures showed a 1.2% year-on-year expansion in global air freight demand. Although weak, this is an improvement when compared to the 0.9% year-on-year demand growth recorded in May and the 0.1% growth realised over the first half of the year, the association said.
