Goods News from Air Cargo Sector
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, air cargo has played a very important role in keeping aircraft in the air, and providing services that the world needs. In addition to vaccines and personal protective equipment, many other important products have been transported around the globe.
This is confirmed by the latest statistics published by IATA, which show that air cargo volumes have increased by +12% in April 2021 when compared with April 2019.
“Air cargo continues to be the good news story for the air transport sector. Demand is up 12% on pre-crisis levels and yields are solid. Some regions are outperforming the global trend, most notably carriers in North America, the Middle East and Africa. Strong air cargo performance, however, is not universal. The recovery for carriers in the Latin American region, for example, is stalled,” said Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General.
