ACSA launches aviation barometer to track movements

Posted 29 July 2016 · Add Comment

Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) has launched its inaugural 'Aviation Barometer', a quarterly indicator of air traffic movements through its nine airports. The barometer will provide a snapshot of the state of air traffic relating to passengers and cargo and the trends which underpin aeronautical data.

ASCA’s barometer will report on domestic, regional and international arrivals and departures. The inaugural barometer covered the first and second quarters of 2016.
 It is expected that over time the barometer will provide a useful insight into the status of the aviation industry domestically and could serve as a partial indicator of the performance of the country’s tourism sector through the tracking of international and regional arrivals.
 ACSA’s chief executive, Bongani Maseko (pictured right)  said: “We are pleased to see that passenger traffic remains strong and consistent across various quarters when compared on a year-to year basis. What stands out in the figures we are publishing today is that South Africa is maintaining its ability to attract international visitors, while domestic air travel remains resilient.”
 “The consistent strength of air travel to and from local and international destinations underpins our aim to continue developing our infrastructure to support long-term economic growth.

  “The continued development of the aerotropolis zones around our three largest international airports will create vital business hubs for South Africa and the continent.”
