The airport – Russia’s largest for both cargo and passengers – said that the airfreight surge was due to a significant increase in cargo on international airlines.
According to September statistics, the largest increase was in transfer cargo via Sheremetyevo, up by 100% over September 2016. International airline imports also increased by 51% against 2016.
The main destinations, accounting for more than 50% of total freight traffic, were China, Germany, the US, the Netherlands, France, Italy and Israel, along with India, South Korea, Thailand and the UK.
