Cargo traffic for Brussels Airport and Frankfurt Airport up in August 2018
Sep 17, 2018: Major European airports Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and Brussels Airport have posted cargo traffic figures for the month of August 2018.
On one hand, Frankfurt Airport has handled 182,589 metric tonnes of cargo (airfreight + airmail) in the reporting month. This represents a slight increase of 0.8 percent year-on-year.
While Brussels Airport has reported 7 percent cargo growth year-on-year compared to August 2017.
Belly cargo continues its growth, with a strong increase of 17.4 percent. Amongst other things, this is explained by the arrival of new long-haul flights to Asia and the Gulf by companies such as Hainan, Cathay Pacific and Emirates.
“The segment of full cargo flights recorded an increase of 4.3 percent compared to the same month last year, thanks especially to some new routes and customers such as Latam and Atlas Air. Trucked air freight, mainly imports, also see a healthy growth of 11.3 percent compared to August 2017. The total tonnage of express service freight remains quite stable (-1.1 percent),” stated Brussels Airport in its official press release.
“In August, the volume of goods exports continued its growth with South America recording an increase of 81 percent, thanks to direct flights operated since April by Latam destined for Brazil and Chile. However, it is the imports coming from Asia that particularly make the difference with very strong growth,” added the airport.
