Etihad Cargo, a division of Etihad Airways, has
posted record monthly figures for July with network volumes
approaching 33,000 tonnes, an increase of 18% on the same month
The figures surpass a previous month
record of 31,700 tonnes which Etihad Cargo carried in March 2012.
Total revenues for the month were up 4% on June and up
8% on the corresponding period the previous year.
Last month Etihad Cargo reported strong H1 2012 results, with
tonnage up 21% to 175,000 tonnes.
Chief Planning and Strategy Officer, Kevin Knight, said, “We’ve
seen a good recovery in business from Europe after the second
quarter. Also, the capability of our fleet with the addition of
the 747-400 freighter has enhanced our overall schedule
flexibility, and helped support significant project work in what
was also a record month for our Charter team ... Looking ahead, we
expect to maintain strong freight performance over the third and
fourth quarters of 2012.”
Etihad Cargo currently
operates a fleet of six freighters, consisting of one Airbus
Airbus A330-200F, one McDonnell Douglas MD-11F, one
Boeing B777F and one Boeing B747-400F.
