Hong Kong Airport’s surprise cargo rise

19 / 06 / 2012

HONG Kong International Airport (HKIA) records a modest increase in freight volumes in May after 14 months of decline.

HKIA handled 333,000 metric tonnes, representing a 1.1 per cent rise.

According to its operator, the Airport Authority Hong Kong, the figure was primarily due to a three per cent year-on-year growth in exports.

The authority also reveals cargo movements to and from Southeast Asia outperformed all the other key regions.
