Holidaymakers jetting around the Asia-Pacific region as part of their adventure travel in Malaysia could be among the double-digit increase in passengers on flights in the area over the past year.

The Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) has published figures showing regional routes within the continent have seen particularly strong growth in demand in the 12 months to October.

During the month, 15.9 million international passengers passed through the organisation's catchment zone on business trips or leisure journeys, including those heading away on adventure travel
in Malaysia.

This is an 11.8 per cent annual growth rate set against an increase in passenger capacity of 5.4 per cent due to additional flights or new routes being scheduled.

As a result, flying to the area became 2.1 per cent more eco-friendly in terms of passenger load per plane, which now stands at nearly four-fifths of seats filled.

The AAPA aims to evolve the tourism and travel sectors in its region by offering a common forum through which operators can voice their views.
