April Cargo Traffic Also Shows Dramatic Gains
The Air Transport Association of America (ATA) said Tuesday
that passenger revenue, based on a sample group of carriers, rose
21 percent in May 2010 versus the same month in 2009, marking the
fifth consecutive month of revenue growth.
Approximately 2 percent more passengers traveled on U.S.
airlines in May, while the average price to fly one mile rose 17
percent. International passenger revenue rose 36 percent, led by a
51 percent gain in trans-Pacific markets. “These results
reflect encouraging signs of the nation’s economic recovery
from the very deep hole of a year ago,” said ATA President
and CEO James C. May.
U.S. airlines saw cargo traffic, as measured in cargo revenue
ton miles, rise 17 percent year over year (8 percent domestically
and 25 percent internationally) in April 2010, driven by increased
international trade. May 2010 cargo data is not yet available.
