'November volumes in January' as air cargo load factors produce a positive start to 2021

Exceptional global air cargo load factors in the last two weeks of January saw 2021 begin with an unusual New Year ‘peak season’ as demand and supply were closely matched, according to the latest weekly market data from industry analysts CLIVE Data Services and TAC Index.

CLIVE’s ‘dynamic loadfactor’ analyses for the first four weeks of the year ending 31 January, based on the volume and weight perspectives of cargo flown and capacity available, shows a load factor of 66%, up 9% pts year-on-year. The global dynamic loadfactor for the last two weeks of January, however, saw an exceptional 10-15% pts rise over the same days of January 2020.
