IATA: Domestic passenger volumes in China ‘rebounded solidly’ in May-2019

    IATA reported (04-Jul-2019) domestic passenger volumes in China “rebounded solidly” in May-2019, with growth lifting to 7.6% year-on-year. This followed “modest” RPK growth in Mar/Apr-2019. According to IATA, despite trade tensions and slower economic activity – particularly through the course of 2018 – both weighing upon RPK growth, demand appears to be in good shape, supported by lower airfares.
