VANCOUVER, May 4 (FAM) – Global air freight demand jumped 14 percent in March, the fastest rate of growth since October 2010, IATA said in its monthly update.

All regions showed increases, except for Latin America, with Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific growth particularly strong. Africa posted the strongest percentage increase, 33.5 percent, but from a low base.

IATA said an increase in the shipment of silicon materials used in consumer electronics was responsible for part of the growth.
