HKIA Air Cargo Statistics for March

In March 2021, cargo throughput saw a year-on-year increase of 4.9% to 397,000 tonnes. The growth in cargo volume last month was mainly attributed to double-digit growth in imports. Despite a decline in transshipments due to a shortage of belly capacity on passenger flights, the overall cargo throughput saw an increase during the month, most significantly in the traffic to and from the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Taiwan.

Over the first three months of the year, cargo handled during the period rose 13% to 1.1 million tonnes.

On a 12-month rolling basis, cargo traffic fell 2.0% to 4.6 million tonnes, respectively.
