China’s air cargo volumes rebounded to near pre-pandemic levels in January, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), reported Xinhua, China’s state press agency.

The volume of cargo and mail transported by air was approximately 654,000 tonnes in January, or 97.3% of the amount recorded in the same period in 2019, said the CAAC.

The degree of recovery expanded 6.6 percentage points from December 2021, the administration said.

The January volume was a 1.1% increase from a month ago, but a 2.3% drop from the same period last year.

In January, the CAAC said China’s air cargo industry had recovered to close to the volume it was at in 2019.
