World airport traffic remained "stubbornly low" in May, according to Airports Council International, but there are indications that the downturn may be bottoming out. Airports participating in the association's passenger and freight "flash reports" recorded an 8% decrease in passenger traffic compared to the same month in 2008, with international traffic down 9.3% and domestic down 6.8%. Through the first five months of the year, total traffic was off 7.5% compared to last year while the rolling 12-month decline was 5%.
