Each region presents a slightly different growth picture, however. In Asia, for example, now the largest aviation market in the world, departures, seats, and ASMs are all growing faster than world averages. Africa/Middle East, although a small market overall, is seeing strong growth as well.
Latin America and North America are demonstrating similar growth patterns at present: minimal to no growth in departures, a small upturn in seats, and steady growth in ASMs, which may be indicative of the impact of newer regional routes. Europe, while a mature market, is nevertheless seeing interesting growth in capacity and miles.
