Finnair records strong start to new cargo year
After Finnair’s new COOL Nordic Cargo terminal went into full service in January, the carrier subsequently registered the fastest growth in its history.
Available scheduled cargo tonne kilometres leapt by 19.8% year-on-year, and revenue scheduled cargo tonne kilometres increased by 17.5%, driven by good cargo market developments in Finland and China. Tonnage from and to Asia increased by 24.2% to a total of 7,405 t in January.
Finnair’s total cargo capacity also included three weekly freighter flights between Helsinki and Brussels, operated by DHL. (ah)
