According to ACI Asia Pacific, passenger traffic exhibited solid growth for the month of April 2015, with Asia Pacific airports reporting 9.3% growth, and airports in the Middle East an 8% gain year-on-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-on-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.
