The International Air Transport Association (IATA) reported that international passenger traffic increased 7.3% in July compared to the same period last year. The IATA also said that domestic air travel increased by 3.5%. Total system traffic increased by 5.9%. “Passenger travel bucked the gloomy economic outlook with a 5.9% increase in July,” IATA DG and CEO Tony Tyler said. “This increase was likely based on the much more optimistic economic outlook that marked the beginning of the year.” The fastest international growth in July occurred in Latin America, up 10.3% compared to July 2010, IATA said, while growth in the well established markets in North America was reported to be 3.9%.
