Estonian cargo up

ESTONIA’s Tallinn Airport registered cargo turnover growth of 74.5 per cent in March at 1,062 tonnes, with airfreight contributing 961 tonnes and mail 101 tonnes to the total.

The March figures put an end to a13-month decline. This comes after airfreight volumes decreased by 40.4 per cent in the first three months of the year to 2,832 tonnes.

“I don’t remember such growth in years, especially in low season. I am confident that this progress will be permanent,” Estonian Air president Andrus Aljas said.

The number of flights operated to and from the airport rose by 17.7 per cent in the first quarter to 8,457 and by 22.1 per cent in March compared to the same month in 2010 to 3,228 flights.
