Brussels Airport’s September cargo volume up 2.5 percent y/y
Oct 10, 2018: Brussels Airport has seen 2.5 percent surge in cargo traffic against the previous September.
During the month of September, both the full-cargo segment (+9.5 percent) and belly cargo (+ 9.0 percent) recorded the highest growth, while integrator services declined (-4.2 percent) due to a number of cancelled flights at DHL.
The strong growth in cargo on board passenger aircraft is due to the new routes to Asia operated by Cathay Pacific and Hainan Airlines, and to Emirates’ doubling of capacity to the Gulf region. These new routes and additional capacity also account for the sharp 21 percent rise in imports via Brussels Airport last month, whilst exports retained the status quo in comparison to the previous September.
The full-cargo segment caught up on the previous year, thanks to new routes and customers such as Latam and Atlas Air. Trucked cargo, meanwhile, retained the status quo (-0.2 percent).
Over the entire third quarter, 177,330 tonnes of cargo were transported at the European hub, an increase of 7.7 percent compared to the same period last year.
