Frankfurt moves back into positive territory

DRAMATIC year-on-year growth in December helped Frankfurt to achieve its second best day ever for freight on 13 December – a sign that the air cargo market might truly be on the mend.Tonnage was an impressive 29.1 per cent higher during the month. Though admittedly this was in comparison with a deeply gloomy December 2008, the rise was sharply better than that seen in November, which was up just seven per cent year-on-year, and October, up just 0.7 per cent.The end of year spurt means Frankfurt finishes the year 10.1 per cent down on 2008, at 1,837,054 tonnes. That compares to 23.5 per cent year-on-year falls in the first quarter and 16.6 per cent in the first three quarters.
