REVIEW OF THE AIR TRANSPORT SITUATION--PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE. PART 1: SCHEDULED AND NON-SCHEDULED AIRLINE DEVELOPMENT, 1966-1976. PART 2: AIR TRANSPORT TRENDS AND PROSPECTS 1976-1986

This review notes that the air transport industry performance compared well against the general economy, and that the growth over the next 10 years should average about 9 percent annually. This article reviews the scheduled and non-scheduled airline development in 1966-1976, and the air transport trends and prospects for 1976-1986. The comparatively favorable position of air transport in terms of production and revenue is due in part to the fact the price of air transport to the user did not increase as rapidly as the per capita income and price index. Various aspects of the development of air transport are compared with related indicators of general economic development and the data are tabulated. The regional variation of traffic growth rates, financial trends, fleet operation and personnel expansion are also discussed. The global assumptions regarding the future development of economic factors (which influence air transport development) made for the purpose of the trends forecast are listed. The ICAO regional passenger traffic forecasts for 1986-scheduled and non scheduled are tabulated.
