Air cargo demand in ME falls by 3%: World ACD Market Data


Global air cargo demand in the Q4 period has been stronger than tonnages in the equivalent period last year, and average rates have continued their gradual post-summer rise, according to the latest weekly figures from WorldACD Market Data. More than halfway through the market’s traditionally buoyant final quarter, there are few signs of a peak season, with demand patterns far mirroring last year’s disappointing Q4 and was moderately ahead in overall tonnage terms. Tonnages ex-APAC were relatively flat, up just 1% on a 2Wo2W basis, with a 4 per cent increase to Europe partially offset by a -2 per cent drop to North America and a 3 per cent decrease to the Middle East & South Asia region, while intra-Asia Pacific tonnages were up by 3 per cent. The most notable decline was recorded ex-North America to Asia Pacific (-8%).
