22 June 2015   ACI Asia-Pacific airports reported 9.3% passenger growth in April 2015


[June 22, 2015 – Hong Kong] Passenger traffic exhibited solid growth for the month of April 2015; with Asia-Pacific airports reported +9.3% growth and the Middle East recorded gain of +8.0% year over year.


The positive growth in most of Asia-Pacific airports was contributed in part by the boost during the Easter holiday period. A number of the major airports reported close to 20% year-on-year growth: Shanghai Pudong (PVG) +19.9%, Incheon (ICN) +18.9%, Mumbai (BOM) +20.7%. Bangkok Don Muang (DMK) continued to deliver the highest growth among major Asia-Pacific airports at +42.2% whereas both Doha (DOH) and Abu Dhabi (AUH) led the Middle East with +15.5% growth.


Air freight in Asia-Pacific experienced marginal growth of +2.6% year over year for the month. The slowing down in freight volumes reflected weaker demands from Europe and slowdown across Asian export markets. The Middle East sustained strong growth at +14.5% due to expansion in both capacity and network. Among major cargo airports in the region, New Delhi (DEL) led Asia-Pacific with the highest growth rate at +19% whereas Dubai (aggregate DXB & DWC1) led the Middle East at +19.6% for the month.
