The IATA forecasts airlines will see the total number of passengers served rise by 31% to 3.91B by 2017.

The biggest increase in demand will be in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions.

The U.S. will still have the largest domestic market by 2017, but China will narrow the gap as capacity increases significantly.
