The provisional figures that are customarily used to benchmark the worlds busiest airports were released on March XX, 2011. Each year, ACI's statistics record the annual (calendar year) passenger, cargo and aircraft movements that are achieved by its approximately X,XXX member airports. Normally, the preliminary figures are released towards the end of the first quarter with the final figures following around four months Later.
ACIs 2010 statistics cover more than XXX of its member airports and account for about XX% of air traffic. Overall, they show significant increases for global passenger and cargo traffic.
The provisional statistics record that passenger traffic grew by X.X% when compared to the 2009 figure, while cargo tonnage increased by XX.X% to XX million tonnes while aircraft movements recorded a slight rise to XX million, up by X.X%. Monthly worldwide passenger growth was consistently high, averaging between X% and XX%. The only two exceptions were the months of April and December, in which European traffic was badly affected by the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud and unusually harsh winter weather respectively. Overall though, Europe still managed a X.X% increase in 2010, thanks to strong international summer and autumn traffic.
"Last year underscored the resilience of the air transport business and resulted in over five billion annual passengers for the first time ever," reported ACI's World Director, Angela Gittens. "It highlighted the shift and divergence in development across the regions - while North America and Europe continued to struggle to reach pre- [global economic] crisis passenger volumes, Asia-Pacific, Latin American-Caribbean and Middle East sustained a strong momentum and gained market share through double digit growth," she said.
A slower than expected economic recovery and restraint by air carriers in adding domestic capacity Led to only a modest growth in North America of X.X%, keeping passenger numbers below the pre-crisis levels in the region, while a XX.X% rise in international passengers carried in the Asia-Pacific region resulted in an overall increase of XX.X%. Latin America and the Caribbean enjoyed strong domestic growth, particularly in Brazil, but other countries in the region also recorded strong. figures, particularly where national economies and low-cost carriers expanded quickly International traffic growth was also important in Africa and the Middle East, which delivered X.X% and XX.X% rises respectively.
Of the ten largest facilities in the world, Atlanta/Hartsfield-Jackson continues to dominate, handling nearly XX million passengers during 2010 - around XX million passengers more than its nearest rival. The fastest growing facility in the top ten was Beijing Capital International with a XX% increase in passenger traffic - up to XX.X million-which meant it moved up from third place in 2009 into second in 2010.
The biggest top ten casualty was London/Heathrow, which saw its traffic decline X.X% -enough to see it move down two places to fourth, with Chicago/O'Hare also climbing above the UK gateway. Heathrow was one of only two airports in the top XX to report a decline in traffic; the other was Las Vegas/McCarren International in XXnd place after a X.X% drop in passenger figures. While outside the top ten the major movers were Dubai International, climbing to XXth place thanks to a XX.X% rise, with Shanghai/PuDong and Jakarta/Soekarno-Hatta both reporting health increases of XX.X% and XX.X% respectively.
ACI says the airline industry's recovery was: "more coherent and comprehensive in the freight sector" where all regions showed double digit increases, led by Asia-Pacific (+XX.X%) and Europe (+XX%). The figures show that international freight was the principal driver of the air freight recovery as total tonnage jumped by XX.X% compared to the 2009 total.
Perhaps the most notable change within the ACI statistics is that after years of gradually narrowing the gap between them, Hong Kong has overtaken Memphis as the world's busiest cargo hub. The US facility recorded growth of X.X% but it was one of only two facilities (along with Beijing) that failed to record double digit growth against 2009. According to ACI, "These figures clearly show that the industry is rebounding, but it must be remembered that 2009 was one of the worst years for the sector and so the percentage rises during 2010 were artificially high."
