As usual, Cargo Facts has published a thorough analysis of  traffic figures – and the news for August shows an improvement. In fact, it’s the fifth consecutive month of year-on-year increases and, with August up 3.6%, is the best so far. European carriers are reporting that while competition is fierce,  volumes do seem to be up although yields remain low. No prizes for guessing where the strongest growth was seen.
