Air freight load factors stable in June but remain at mid-2009 lows: IATA

Air transport volume growth moderated in June but the trend for 2015 remains robust – air freight volumes weakened further on declining trade activity. Air freight load factors were stable in June but remain at lows not seen since mid-2009, said the IATA report.
