In September 2020, HKIA cargo throughput was 388,000 tonnes, recording a year-on-year drop of 4.4%, while freighter movements surged 25.0% to 6,020, up from 4,815 recorded during the same month last year.

On the cargo front, although imports and exports increased by 10% and 4% respectively compared to the same month last year, transshipments experienced a significant decrease due to shortage of belly capacity on passenger flights. Cargo throughput to and from Southeast Asia and Mainland China experienced the most significant decreases during the month.

Over the first nine months of the year, HKIA cargo throughput saw an 8.4% drop to 3.2 million tonnes.

On a 12-month rolling basis, cargo throughput fell 7.0% to 4.5 million tonnes.
