(Actual yearly growth rates are of course differing from the averages used in Fig 6.1.) The values for Air and Sea travel only include domestic and Intra-EU-27 transport. Most numbers are based on estimates and data for Air and Sea are provisional estimates.

Buy what you need and not what you want!
