Etihad Cargo record throughput in April and May

Etihad-Cargo-reportEtihad Cargo has moved into the list of world’s top 10 performing global air cargo operators after an increased throughput in April and May.
In May, Etihad Cargo moved 48,869 tonnes of cargo around the world, 31 per cent more than in the same period last year (37,403 tonnes) and an increase of 9 per cent compared to April, when it moved 44,730 tonnes, 30 per cent more than in the same period last year (34,352 tonnes).
“Moving onto the list of world’s top 10 is a great achievement and our intention is to continue building our business, create value for our partners, and support our customers,” said Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer.
He said the impressive figures were driven by better capacity utilisation on routes to and from the Netherlands, US and India, more bellyhold capacity to and from Munich, New York and Chengdu, enhanced scheduling, optimised connections, and a robust charter business.
Looking ahead, the company said its growth projections for the remainder of 2014 are on track. “At the end of this month we will take delivery of a fourth Airbus A330-200 freighter and, in the second half of 2014, have access to more bellyhold capability when 10 passenger aircraft are added to the fleet, routes to five new passenger destinations are launched, and frequencies to existing points are increased,” Knight said.
