1 CARGO E-CHARTBOOK Q 4 OVERVIEW Air freight volumes continue to show solid gains on a year ago, supported by economic improvements in some regions, but high jet fuel prices and overall weakness in yields kept cargo financial performance from improving so far this year. Emerging Asia trade volumes have rebounded after weakness in Q and consumers in the US are more optimistic about future economic performance. These developments have supported growth in demand for air-freighted commodities like semi-conductors. However, in Europe consumer confidence and trade activity have weakened due to the Russia-Ukraine crisis, which could weaken air freight demand in months ahead. Business confidence continues to point to expansion, but rates of improvements are still weaker than year-end. And although jet fuel prices have eased slightly, they remain high at about $/bb. On the positive side, yields appear to be stabilizing and are up slightly on a year ago, which could reduce downward pressure on financial performance in months ahead. Consistent with more supportive demand conditions in some regions, cargo heads surveyed in July expect growth in traffic and yields to pick-up during the year ahead. Economic Situation the economic outlook for 4 remains improved on, but expectations have been revised down slightly, mostly due to weather-related slowdown in the US in early-4 (page ) Traffic Growth traffic volumes are up 4-5% on a year ago, but other than a solid rise in July, the trend has been broadly flat throughout 4. Growth ahead could be dampened by trends in production which suggest a shift toward domestic activity (page ) Demand Environment remains supportive, but recent months have shown diverging developments across regions. World trade volumes have rebounded in Asia, but have fallen in Europe as a result of the Russia- Ukraine crisis. Business confidence continues to signal expansion in manufacturing activity, but rates of improvement still track at a slower pace than those seen toward the end of (page ) Demand Drivers are mostly positive but also show regional divergence. In China, consumer confidence remains stable and is improving in the US, but European consumers have become more pessimistic over recent months. Capital spending intentions of companies in the UK and Japan remain positive on balance, but have weakened slightly in Japan compared to Q (page ) Capacity improvements in freight load factors have moderated in 4 but aircraft utilization rates are showing some signs of improvement. However, pressure on aircraft utilization remains could intensify, with new aircraft deliveries set to expand the existing widebody fleet by more than 7% in 4 (page 4) Competition air freight rates are stable but show now improvement on a year ago. By contrast, sea freight rates have improved, supported by strength in container shipping in the Americas and Asia (page 4) Revenue and Yields air freight yields appear to have stabilized, and have some improvement on a year ago. This could alleviate some downward pressure on cargo business financial performance (page 5) Costs jet fuel prices have eased slight, but remain high at about $/bbl. Nominal wage rates continue to fall in Europe and China, but have been on the rise in the US (page 5) Profitability outlook consistent with some improvement in demand conditions in Q compared to H, heads of cargo surveyed in July expect stronger growth in traffic and yields over the next months (page 5) IATA Economics

2 Cargo echartbook Q 4 Economic Outlook & Traffic Growth The global economic outlook for 4 remains improved on (), but there has been yet another downward revision to the outlook since the start of the year. The global outlook has been dampened by weaker than expected performance of the US economy, which was negatively impacted by extreme weather earlier this year. Recent indicators, however, point to rising employment and growth in manufacturing. Despite recent impacts of the Russia-Ukraine crisis on the Eurozone recovery, the region is expected to grow much more strongly in 4 compared to. Europe and the US are now expected to expand at similar rates in 4, even though the US has enjoyed relatively looser bank lending standards (). Tightening fiscal policy in both the US and Europe will ensure that growth remains well below that of emerging market economies. Air freight volumes remain 4-5% above year ago levels, supported by cyclical improvements in economic growth. However, stronger economic growth in 4 has not generated the expansion of international trade that it would have done in the past, as production has been on-shored () partly due to market factors such as rising wages in low cost economies and partly due to a recent rise in protectionist measures. The Bali trade deal on trade facilitation may help to improve this situation Forecasts for GDP growth Source: EIU Freight Traffic Growth Source: IATA, ACI Domestic Freight Volumes (ACI) International Freight Volumes (ACI) International FTKs (IATA) - US Japan Euro Area ASPAC excl Japan Latin America Middle East North Africa Sub- Saharan Africa World -8 Difference in % GDP over previous year Goverment Cyclically Adjusted Fiscal Balance Source: IMF United States 4 Euro Area Japan China India Russia Brazil Tightening Loosening % 5% 4% % % % % -% -% -% -4% 5.

3 Cargo echartbook Q 4 Demand Environment & Drivers The demand environment for air cargo remains supportive, but recent months have shown diverging developments across regions. World trade volumes have recovered after weakness earlier in the year (7), and that is largely due to a rebound in Emerging Asia trade activity. However, there is evidence of weakness in European trade, reflecting the impacts of the Russia-Ukraine crisis. Business confidence continues to signal expansion in manufacturing activity, but rates of improvement still track at a slower pace than those seen toward the end of (8). There has been no change in inventory to sales ratios (9) suggesting businesses still have no immediate need to reduce their reliance on quick transportation of cargo. Demand drivers remain positive overall, but are also showing signs of regional divergence. In China, consumer confidence remains stable, and there has been further increase in optimism about the economic outlook in the US. By contrast, European consumers have become more pessimistic over recent months, reflecting the adverse impacts of the Russia-Ukraine crisis (). Nonetheless, demand drivers remain improved on a year ago, and this continues to support stronger demand for air-freighted commodities, as indicated by expansion in semi-conductor shipments ().

4 Cargo echartbook Q 4 Capacity & Competition Improvements in freight load factors have moderated in 4 (4) due to increases in capacity through the passenger business (), but aircraft utilization rates are showing some signs of improvement (4). The freighter fleet has been stable (). However, with an expected 4% increase in 4 of deliveries of new twin-aisle aircraft with belly hold capacity, there could be some downward pressure on aircraft utilization rates ahead more than 7% will be added to the existing widebody fleet. Air freight rates are stable but have not improved on a year ago (7). Demand for Asian goods moved by air remains stable there has been no growth on this key air freight market when compared to the pre-crisis peak (). By contrast, sea freight rates are showing some improvement. Demand for container shipping has been strongest in the Americas and Asia (8). Number of aircraft Freighter fleet in service.

5 Cargo echartbook Q 4 Revenues, Costs & Profits Air freight yields appear to have stabilized, and are showing slight improvement on a year ago (9). This could help reduce downward pressure on profitability, but cargo business financial performance remains weak ( & ). Jet fuel prices have eased slightly since the most recent mid-year peak. Although there has been concern over supply disruptions, the demand outlook has also weakened, particularly in Europe, and that has caused crude oil prices to slip. Nonetheless, jet fuel prices remain high at around $/bbl (). While nominal wage rates have stabilized in Europe and China, they are showing some increase in the US as a result of improving employment conditions (). Consistent with some improvement in demand conditions in Q compared to H, heads of cargo surveyed in July 4 expect stronger growth in traffic volumes over the next months as well as some increase in cargo yields (4).
