20 Year Passenger Forecast

Future-proof your aviation business

​The world changes quickly. The political and economic forces of today will transform the future, but how they will affect air passenger traffic is uncertain. To ensure your long-term strategic planning remains sound, you need to continually re-evaluate in light of current changes. And that’s a massive job that requires big data and specific expertise. IATA’s 20-year Air Passenger Forecast makes it easy for you.

As an airline, airport, government agency, tourism-industry company, or firm financing aviation initiatives, you need to understand how air passenger traffic will evolve over the long term, and how current political and economic trends can positively or adversely affect growth rates. IATA analyzes the fundamental drivers of air travel demand to identify the major traffic trends for the next 20 years, including different scenarios, to provide valuable input for your long-term strategic decision-making.
