"The industry is going through a period of slow growth in passengers, a
direct result of a slowdown in consumer spending. That said, revenues
will still grow by 5 per cent this year, thanks largely to fare
increases," said Kristelle Audet, Economist.
•Airfares are expected to grow by 3.6 per cent in 2013, but airlines'
pricing power is fading because Canadians are tightening their
household budgets. •Airline traffic is growing at a slower pace than in 2012. In particular,
Canadians made fewer leisure trips overseas at the beginning of the
year. •Canadian airlines are investing more resources in their social media
strategies to manage their brands and reputations online.
In the first quarter of this year, household spending on air
transportation services posted its first year-over-year decline since
2009. A combination of high indebtedness, weak consumer confidence, and
sluggish job creation is putting pressure on household budgets.
The outlook is somewhat brighter for work-related travel, because the
U.S. economy recovery offers opportunities for Canadian exporters, and
business travel between the two countries could climb as a result.
One area with bright growth prospects is inbound travel from China,
which will grow even further with the expanded Canada-China air
transport agreement. However, the ongoing strike by Canadian
foreign-service officers is a concern for the industry, because of a
reduction of visa processing around the world.
The Canadian industry is expected to turn a profit of $290 million in
2013. Profit margins are expected to decline from 2.5 per cent in 2012
to 1.3 per cent in 2013.
Air transportation is one of 16 industries covered in the Conference
Board's Industrial Outlook series of economic forecasts.
The Conference Board is also releasing a new publication, National Air Transportation Policy: Promoting Economic Prosperity for
Canadians in the 21st Century, on Thursday, Sept. 26.
