Europe's first half air cargo up 8.7pc in its 'best showing since 2010'

SDI Logistics Co.,Ltd | Updated: Aug 19, 2017

AIR cargo traffic across Europe rose by 8.7 per cent year on year in the first half of 2017 in the best first half-year since 2010, on the back of improved market conditions not only in Europe, but worldwide.

According to figures released by European industry body, Airports Council International, freight at EU airports increased by 11.5 per cent and by 24.8 per cent at non-EU gateways, reported London's Air Cargo News.

Of the major gateways, Moscow Sheremetyevo saw the biggest rise - up 32.8 per cent to 102,897 tonnes, followed by London Gatwick, up 20.5 per cent to 42,376 tonnes, and London Heathrow, up 9.1 per cent to 823,320 tonnes.

London Gatwick registered an 18.4 per cent increase in cargo for the first seven months of 2017, from 73,096 tonnes in 2016 to 86,544 tonnes in 2017.

Istanbul Ataturk enjoyed a 15 per cent rise, to 485,754 tonnes, although there was a bounce back from last year's terrorist attacks to take into account (the airport was attacked on June 28 while there were several other attacks in the city earlier in the year).

In contrast, Paris Orly suffered a 20.3 per cent fall to 42,039 tonnes although the French capital's main gateway recorded a 2.5 per cent rise, to 965,704 tonnes.

Frankfurt, Europe's number one cargo hub, registered a 5.7 per cent rise 1.04 million tonnes.
