Asian airlines show healthy cargo growth in March

4/24/2014 8:39:41 AM

Preliminary traffic figures for March released by the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) showed positive growth in air cargo traffic.

Boosted by stronger export markets, the region's carriers registered a 6.7 percent increase in international freight demand as measured in freight tonne kilometre terms. Offered freight capacity grew by a measured 5.9 percent, and consequently the average international air cargo load factor for Asia Pacific carriers edged 0.5 percentage points higher to 68.4 percent, the first increase seen in over a year.

Andrew Herdman, AAPA director general, said: "For the first quarter of the year, international freight markets saw an encouraging 3.8 percent growth in traffic, with further evidence of a pick-up in international trade, leading to stronger demand for Asian exports."
