Volumes up 9.7% in May across German gateways

Air cargo volumes in Germany rose by 9.7 per cent to 408,694 tonnes in May, according to the ADV (German Airports Association).

ADV says the high and stable cargo volume proves the “current positive economic development despite the political crisis”.

In the first five months of 2017, ADV reports that tonnage is up 6.9 per cent to 1,958.501 tonnes with exports up 6.6 per cent and imports up 7.2 per cent.

The number of commercial aircraft movements across Germany’s airports grew by 4.2 per cent to more than 191,000 take-offs and landings.
