Heathrow cargo volumes hit new heights
20 / 03 / 2015
London Heathrow Airport saw a 5.3 per cent growth in cargo volumes in full year 2014 to 1.5m tonnes, ending with a final freight flourish.
In December, cargo volumes at the number one UK freight hub rose 6.2 per cent overall, including increases of 33.5 per cent to Mexico, 29.4 per cent to Brazil, 15 per cent to Turkey and 11.2 per cent to India
Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said: “Vietnam Airlines’ announcement that it is moving its operation from Gatwick to Heathrow is good news for Britain as it secures a direct flight to an important growth economy, with more frequent flights and cargo capacity.
“It also underlines that airlines can only make flights to many long haul destinations viable from a hub airport like Heathrow."
