HKIA cargo throughput dropped 6.8% in May

HKIA cargo throughput dropped 6.8% to 377,000 tonnes compared to the same month last year.

Cargo exports experienced an 11% year-on-year increase in May, with North America showing the strongest growth. The overall decline in cargo throughput was mainly attributed to the decrease in transshipments and imports due to the reduced belly capacity of passenger flights. Traffic to and from key trading regions in Southeast Asia and India experienced the most significant drops.

Over the first five months of the year, HKIA cargo throughput recorded 1.7 million tonnes, a drop of 10.7% compared to the same period last year.

On a 12-month rolling basis, cargo throughput recorded 4.6 million tonnes, representing a decrease of 7.7% year on year.
