Airline Growth Report (Sept 2014)

IATA Airlines Financial Growth Report (August – September 2014)

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is an international trade association covering 240 airlines in the world (84% of world’s air traffic). The association, along with collecting and analyzing flight data as well as financial data regarding airlines, does a lot to support aviation and airline industry worldwide. 

IATA has recently published a report on the financial growth of airlines in August – September 2014. The key findings of the report are as follows: 

  • Airline industry continued to improve in August – September 2014 period and the improvement is lead by US carriers. 
  • Worldwide airline share prices decreased by 4% in September. The decrease is predominantly caused by the shrinking economies and the spread of the Ebola virus. 
  • Jet fuel prices fell in relation to the lapse in crude oil prices.
  • Passenger revenues increased in the US but in other regions, the revenues remained weak. 
  • The volume of air travel in general continued to expand thanks to the growing conditions in the US and Asia. 
  • In August 2014, the growth in available seats slowed down to 3.5% (annual). 
  • Passenger load increased while air freight load decreased (0.4%). 

Although the airline share prices had to face a decrease by 4% in the August – September 2014 period, the yearly data shows that they are still up by 11% in 2014, according to the report. Moreover, the volume of air passengers rose in every region without exception in the period.
