The hub also reported that cargo traffic was down 9.9% in August 2019, compared with the same month in 2018.

Year to date, from January to August 2019, the airport processed 1,063,475 tonnes of cargo, which is 5.3% less than the same time period last year.

The performance at Heathrow is a reflection of cargo performance across the continent.
