Global air cargo shows improvement for fourth consecutive month in August

The gradual route to recovery to pre-COVID market conditions continued for the global air cargo industry in August for a fourth-consecutive month, according to fresh volume and yield data from two of the industry’s leading analysts, CLIVE Data Services and TAC Index.

Year-on-year growth for the full four weeks of August showed a further narrowing of the gap in international air cargo volumes to -17% versus August 2019. This compares to a -41% YOY disparity in April, since when month-on-month demand has improved. Capacity gains, however, have added to the downward pressure on both CLIVE’s ‘dynamic loadfactor’ and average yields.
