The International Air Transport Association reports global passenger traffic results (revenue passenger kilometers or RPKs) for June showing a 5.7% increase in demand compared to June 2014.
This was a slowdown compared to the 6.9% year-over-year growth recorded in May, in part owing to the timing of Ramadan, which depressed travel demand in the Middle East. June capacity (available seat kilometers or ASKs) climbed 6.0%, and load factor dipped 0.2 percentage points to 81.1%.
June international passenger demand rose 5.3% compared to June 2014. Airlines in all regions except Africa recorded growth, although there was wide variation between regions. Capacity climbed 6%, pushing down load factor 0.5 percentage points to 80.4%.
