Abu Dhabi cargo climbs

AIR CARGO volumes at Abu Dhabi International Airport increased by 24.5 per cent to 66,944 tonnes in May. 
Aircraft movements rose to 12,931 – up 15.8 per cent. 
Manila was the most popular route during the month due to a boost in Philippine Airlines’ operations, followed by Doha, as a result of Etihad augmenting its flights to Qatar. Bangkok was the third most popular service, says a company statement. 
“New code share partnerships between Etihad and various airlines have positively impacted on our traffic numbers and we were excited to receive the first Aegean Airways flight on the 28 May,” comments Ahmad Al Haddabi, chief operations officer at Abu Dhabi Airports.
