Cologne cargo up 2% in 2014

Cologne Bonn Airport saw record air cargo growth in 2014, handling 753,000 tonnes, a two per cent increase on 2013.
The German airport handled 9.5m passengers in 2014 – a “significant rise” over prior year.
“2014 has exceeded our expectations. We have developed better than the German passenger market, partially with growth rates above five per cent,” says Michael Garvens, chairman of the management board of Flughafen Köln/Bonn
He added: “Without the numerous strikes we would even have done a little better, but all in all this is a very positive development.”
The “moderate” growth in air cargo can be put down to the economic recovery, says Garvens: “Freight has recovered somewhat from its low in 2013, but could not quite keep pace with the passenger traffic.”
