The February 2016 edition of the VE Bulletin, written by Richard Maslen – Content Manager at UBM EMEA Routes – examines how global air connectivity drives tourism and economic growth. Forecasts from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) suggest that, by 2034, 7.3 billion airline passengers will be travelling globally. That’s more than double the 3.5 billion passengers that travelled by air in 2015. Establishing new routes opens up new markets for both passengers and cargo traffic and also generates additional non aeronautical revenues on the ground.
