Globally, Iata forecasts global industry net profit to rise to $38.4 billion in 2018, an improvement from the $34.5bn expected net profit in 2017, which Iata revised from a $31.4bn forecast in June. The demand for air cargo is at its strongest level in over a decade.
Rising fuel prices have also hit USA airlines, but high demand and improving economies in Europe have helped trigger profit in airlines worldwide, an IATA economist told Reuters. "While restocking cycles are usually short-lived, the growth of e-commerce is expected to support continued momentum in the cargo business beyond the rate of expansion of world trade in 2018", the association added.
Europe's airlines are in second place with an anticipated US$11.5 billion in profit, boosted by economic recovery in their home markets as well as some consolidation in that region.

In terms of revenue per passenger kilometres (RPK), airlines are expected to see a 6% growth in 2018 compared with a 5.7% expected increase in available seat kilometres (ASK).

For the first time, more than four billion passengers will be travelling this year, according to the aviation watchdog, and that number is expected to go up to 4.3 billion next year. As a result, net margin will edge up from 4.6 per cent in 2017 to 4.7 per cent in 2018 despite operating margins being squeezed by increasing costs. "This will outpace an expected 3.5 per cent increase in unit revenues", Pearce said.
All regions, except North America, improved load factors during the month, with an overall 0.8 percentage point increase to 80.8 percent.
