European and US traffic trends November 2005
The snapshot of recent traffic trends (right) shows that traffic has recovered and surpassed pre–September 11 levels in all regions. Europe–Far East traffic volumes are steadily growing and the US Majors have finally returned to pre–September 11 levels on both the North Atlantic and Pacific routes.
AEA intra–Europe growth is modest, simply because it is driven by LCCs. Traffic to the Far East is strong, though threatened by the developments covered in the previous article.
