HKIA Air Traffic Figures for February

HKIA Air Traffic Figures for February

In February 2021, HKIA cargo throughput was 310,000 tonnes, recording a year-on-year increase of 23.3%.

Combining the figures for the first two months of this year, which eliminates the effect of Chinese New Year falling in different months in 2020 and 2021, cargo throughput saw 17.9% growth to 719,000 tonnes.

The combined increase of cargo volume in January and February was largely driven by a surge in exports. Transshipments experienced a double-digit decline due to a shortage of belly capacity on passenger flights. The overall cargo to and from North America, the Middle East and Europe saw the most significant increase during the period.

On a 12-month rolling basis, cargo throughput fell 3.5% to 4.6 million tonnes.
