I found this very interesting chart on global airline traffic at Amadeus. It’s based on a study between airconomy and Amadeus.

I’m not surprised to see the 13.4% increase in air travel between Asian countries and the Middle East. Looks like Qatar Airways and Emirates are the key players boosting air traffic to/from and via the Middle East region with more destinations than ever. A lot of people we know now travel 2 or more times a year as compared to maybe once in a year or 2 years.
