Tonnage fall of 2.9% in October at Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Airport’s cargo volumes fell year-on-year (YOY) by 2.9 per cent to 150,070 tonnes in October.

The airport said Brazil and China showed the strongest cargo performance with Brazil’s growth driven by British Airways’ additional flights to the country.

China’s cargo volumes grew following the arrival of a number of new Chinese routes, including the addition of the airport’s 11th Chinese route to Shenzhen.

In the first 10 months of 2018, tonnage is up YOY by one per cent to 1.4 million tonnes and on a rolling 12-month basis, tonnage is up by 2.4 per cent to 1.7 million tonnes.
