It stated that the maximum rise in economic and business activity has been occurring in Asia Pacific.However, it also added that short-haul European business travel continues to remain severely feeble and recently North Atlantic flights are just beginning to show improvement.

Giovanni BisignaniIATA Director General Giovanni Bisignani stated recently in New York that international airlines would have to wait until mid 2010 for nonstop development in business class demand, which powers earnings in the sector.

In standard class, which forms upto 90 percent of traffic but a lesser share of revenues, around 70 percent, IATA said that an additional increase in consumer confidence will be essential in order to produce optimistic growth.IATA's 230 members include British Airways,Cathay Pacific,United Airlines and Emirates.
