In a monthly fall of a size not seen since the immediate aftermath of the

Gulf war, more than 10 years ago, passenger traffic on the

international scheduled services of IATA<.> airlines declined 17

percent in September
, compared to September 2000, and as a result showed

no growth in the first nine months of the year. Carriers were unable to

adjust their seat supply quickly enough; the passenger load factor fell from

78 percent in August to 69 percent in September.



During the first nine months of 2001, total traffic (passengers plus

freight) fell by nearly 3 percent, against a total capacity increase of 2

percent (these figures do not appear on the summary table, below).



Carriers most severely affected were those registered in North America;

their passenger and freight traffic fell more than 30 percent in September.

European and Far Eastern carriers experienced a 12 percent fall in passenger

traffic overall, but carriers with a high US component in their services

fared worse.
