20.1% growth in aircraft flow against 2022: QAC
Qatar Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA) has stated Preliminary Air Transport Statistics for July 2023 indicates an increase in aircraft movement by 20.1 per cent compared to the same month last year. Cargo analytics firm, Xeneta, stated, however, air cargo and mail showed a decline of 1.2 per cent compared to the same month in 2022. The QCAA is an official governmental institution recognized internally and externally for civil aviation affairs and participates in policy development at the regional and global levels through its internal departments and units. Earlier this month it was reported that while air cargo enjoyed record demand when COVID closed borders and snarled supply chains, it is presently reeling from overcapacity and tumbling freight rates.
