Luxembourg, 10 December 2013. November 2013 turned out to be a record month for Cargolux with unprecedented tonnage and revenues. The airline carried over 74,000 tonnes of freight on its worldwide network, a 27% increase compared to November 2012. This makes November 2013 the best month in the history of Cargolux. Traffic on the airline’s Asian routes, especially Hong Kong and Shanghai, was particularly strong.
Cargolux benefits from the improvements in the global air cargo market that, according to the latest IATA figures, grew in all world regions with the exception of Africa. For October, IATA notes an FTK growth of 4% year-on-year while freight volumes increased 1.3% globally from September to October.
