Air passengers from southern Europe to Asia saw the strongest year-on-year growth (+14.2%) during 2Q2015 driven mainly by passengers from Italy and Spain that accounted for 70 percent of the sub-region total. Solid year-on-year growth was also reported from western Europe (+9.6%) and northern Europe (+3.5%) for the same period. Meanwhile, eastern Europe was the only sub-region that witnessed a decrease in numbers of air passengers to Asia (-2.6%) caused by a drop in numbers of passengers from the Russian Federation that account for 67 percent of the sub-region total.
