HKIA 2020 Cargo Operations Remain Resilient 

In 2020, HKIA total cargo throughput remained relatively stable at 4.5 million tonnes, a year-on-year decline of 7.0%. The airport handled 68,660 cargo flights during the year, an 18.3% surge compared to 2019.

In the single month of December 2020, HKIA saw a 0.2% year-on-year drop in cargo handled to 443,000 tonnes.

Cargo imports and exports continued their strong growth, climbing 18% and 8% year on year, respectively. Transshipments decreased significantly due to shortage of belly capacity on passenger flights.
