Sheremetyevo Handles 226,000 Tonnes of Cargo and Mail in Nine Months

Sheremetyevo International airport handled approximately 205,000 tonnes of cargo and 21,500 tonnes of mail in the first nine months of 2020, retaining its position as the largest air cargo hub in Russia and is the leader in cargo traffic among the Moscow Air Transportation Cluster airports with a 70.8% share.

Moscow Cargo LLC handled 50% more imported medical cargo from April to September than during the same period in 2019.

These volumes were achieved despite a significant reduction in routes and a decrease in the number passenger flights associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
