More than half, or 54 percent, of the violations of safety-regulations involved smoking onboard, 34 percent had to do with regulations such as turning off electronic devices and 14 percent dealt with not complying with seat belt signs, the IATA said. This will outpace an expected 3.5 per cent increase in unit revenues. While this was lower than the likely 7.5 per cent improvement in RPKs in 2017, the figure was still above the 10-15 year average of 5.5 per cent. Volumes are expected to grow by 4.5 per cent in 2018 (down from the 9.3 per cent growth of 2017).
Another 200 million passengers are expected to travel although the rate of growth is slowing.
IATA described costs as the "biggest challenge to profitability" in 2018, with jet oil prices expected to jump 12.5 per cent in 2018 compared with 2017 levels.

Fuel was tipped to comprise 20.5 per cent of total costs for airlines in 2018, up from 18.8 per cent in the prior year.
