Air cargo up at Abu Dhabi Airport

ABU DHABI International Airport recorded a 15.8 per cent rise in cargo activity in the first quarter of 2014.
The facility handled 183,344 tonnes of freight at its three terminals in comparison with 158,369 during the same period last year, reveals a company statement.
Abu Dhabi Airports (ADA) is a public joint-stock company wholly owned by the Abu Dhabi Government. In September 2006, ADA assumed responsibility for the management of Abu Dhabi and Al Ain International airports. 
Two years later, ADA added Al Bateen Executive Airport (a business aviation airport) and Sir Bani Yas and Delma Island airports to its portfolio.
