L'IATA, l'Association internationale du transport aérien a publié son "Premium Traffic Monitor" pour le mois d'août 2012.

Alors que sa croissance n'avait été que de 0,5 % au cours du mois de juillet 2012, le trafic premium connait une forte croissance au cours du mois d'août 2012 : +8,5 %.

Le nombre de passagers en classe économique est également en hausse puisqu'il est supérieur de 6,2 % par rapport à la même période un an plus tôt.

Points clés :

  • Premium passenger numbers rebounded in August, with 8.5% year-on-year growth, compared to 0.5% contraction in July;
  • Economy class travel was also up, with the market 6.2% higher than a year ago, compared to July's 3.0% increase;
  • We are cautious about extrapolating the improvement in premium travel into the months ahead;
    The modest improvement in business confidence doesn't justify the significant rise in business travel in August;
  • The rebound was narrowly based, with much of the increase coming from within Europe and across the North Atlantic;
  • Since much of the Eurozone is in recession or slow economic growth, that does not look sustainable;
    Furthermore, the sharp rise in year-on-year growth is partly due to Hurricane Irene and European capacity cuts reducing traffic in August 2011;
  • Although the seat mix has improved, it is hard to rationalize with current business conditions suggesting the opposite trend;
  • But routes connected to emerging economies continue to show robust performance, with solid growth in August;
  • Air travel performance reflects a combination of downward pressure from Europe, and support from emerging economies and, to some extent, the US;
  • Further improvement in business confidence should benefit premium travel, but it's too early to suggest a higher growth trend.
