UK's top airports see air cargo growth in February, except Manchester
Date:2018-03-14 Readers:
THE UK's leading airports, apart from Manchester, recorded strong cargo volume growth in February, with London Heathrow's freight up five per cent year on year - a record high for the 19th straight month - at 133,140 tonnes on the back of growth in North American and East Asian markets.

Commenting on the results, chief executive John Holland-Kaye said: "Figures show that Heathrow is filling up fast - if we don't act soon to expand our nation's global gateway, the UK will fall further behind our European rivals. A prosperous, global-trading Britain needs an expanded Heathrow now."



Indeed, six of Britain's key trade routes that account for one-fifth of cargo volumes at Heathrow, are already full - including Shanghai, Tokyo Haneda, Delhi, Mumbai, Los Angeles and Dubai, London's Air Cargo News reported.



London Stansted posted year-on-year growth of 2.1 per cent in freight volumes for February, with 19,477 tonnes moving through the airport. CEO Ken O'Toole highlighted the addition of new services to Dubai, the US and Canada in the coming months.

In the run-up to Mother's Day in the UK some 1,000 tonnes of flowers were flown into Stansted from key growing regions in Africa and South America.



Cargo manager Conan Busby at airport operator Manchester Airport Group (MAG) said: "In March, Stansted will handle just over half of all UK fresh flowers coming into this country from outside the EU."



Another of MAG's airports, East Midlands, registered a 9.2 per cent increase in air freight in February to reach 26,782 tonnes. Manchester's throughput, however, declined 5.2 per cent year on year to 7,643 tonnes.



At London Gatwick cargo volumes were up 37.2 per cent in February to 8,183 tonnes due an uptick in long-haul flights. The airport confirmed that Qatar Airways would add double-daily flights to Doha in May.
