Summary

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 2.3 per cent in March — unchanged from the previous month. This was in line with the consensus view and is a temporary pause driven by the timing of Easter, which fell later this year compared with 2016.

The transport component was significantly impacted by the seasonal distortion with prices falling by 3.9 per cent between February and March 2017 compared with a 22.9 per cent rise during the same two months a year ago. On an annual basis, airfares inflation fell by 22.8 per cent, which had a 0.26 per cent negative contribution to the change in the headline inflation rate.
