Etihad Cargo’s record July cargo tonnage

ETIHAD CARGO achieved a record monthly uplift in July of 45,000 tonnes, a remarkable 37 per cent increase on the same month in 2012.
Etihad Airways’ chief strategy and planning officer, Kevin Knight, enthuses: “Over the past 12 months we’ve strengthened our global cargo business, expanded operations across new and existing trade lanes, seen demand continue to grow and, in response, we’ve been able to add greater capacity via our growing passenger and freighter fleet.”
The improved tonnage figures for July were driven largely by increases in key export markets such as India, Hong Kong and China and demand into the Middle East for foodstuffs ahead of the Holy Month of Ramadan, predominately from The Netherlands.
