    Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), the world's number one airfreight hub by throughput, recorded "significant growth" in cargo volumes during March 2017.

    Cargo traffic recorded a year-on-year increase of 17.8% to 433,000 tonnes in March. Passenger volume dropped 2% to 5.9m, compared with the same month last year. 

    An HKIA spokesperson said: "The strong growth in cargo throughput was largely driven by exports, which recorded a robust 24% year-on-year increase. Imports and transhipments also experienced double-digit growth. Among the key trading regions, Europe and North America showed the most significant increases."

    During the first three months of 2017, cargo volume at HKIA registered 11.5% year-on-year growth to 1.1m tonnes. 

    On a rolling 12-month basis, HKIA has handled 4.6m tonnes of cargo, representing a year-on-year increase of 6.7%.

    Frankfurt Airport (FRA) posted a 9.8% increase in airfreight and airmail volumes in March to 205,443 tonnes, the highest monthly growth rate recorded over the previous six years.

    The March boost meant that the top German airport and Europe’s number one cargo hub recorded a 5.8% increase in airfreight and airmail volumes in the first three months of 2017 to 535,764 tonnes.

    Frankfurt’s positive result indicates a pick-up for Europe’s largest economy. Germany’s Munich Airport saw its dynamic growth continue into the first quarter of 2017, with a year-on-year increase of approximately eight percent to more than 85,000 tonnes.

    Elsewhere in Europe, Heathrow Airport saw its March 2017 cargo volumes surge to 148,000 tonnes, a near 13% increase over the same month last year and the largest monthly growth in more than five years.

    Europe’s number two and three cargo hubs in 2016, Paris and Amsterdam-Schiphol airports, have yet to post their March 2017 airfreight volumes.

    Cargo volumes at Manchester Airports Group (MAG) operated hubs continue to expand in March with Manchester and Stansted seeing double-digit growth and East Midlands up 5.5 per cent.

    Manchester Airport grew 14.9 per cent to 9,933 tonnes, while Stansted Airport was up 10.2 per cent to 24,250 tonnes and East Midlands Airport by 5.5 per cent to 30,320 tonnes.

    MAG says the growth, particularly at Manchester came from increased long-haul capacity allowing more cargo to leave in the bellyholds of passenger aircraft to destinations like Beijing, Singapore, Houston and San Francisco.

    Manchester Airport chief executive officer, Ken O’Toole says San Francisco is a very important route, saying: “It was the latest in a long list of key long haul routes we have added over the past 12 months, ensuring we are connecting the North with key markets across the world.”
