Freighters, Mandarin News August 22, 2017 at 4:21 pm

2017年上半年,国泰集团净亏损2.62亿美元,而去年同期净利润为4500万美元,国泰客运业务陷入了中国大陆市场竞争日益激烈化的泥潭。国泰货运业务则是利好不断,今年上半年货量同比增长了9%,营业收入增长更为强劲,同比增长接近12%。 此外,国泰航空还提供了诸多货运业务的相关细节。《空运通讯》从中摘选了丰富的内容,不仅可对国泰有一个大致的认识,还能深入了解其航空货运业务的整体状况,显然,今年是国泰货运业务长期以来最好的年份: 2017年4月以来,受益于恢复燃油附加费以及中国大陆的出口强劲。 2017年2月,国泰航空与汉莎航空签署了香港至欧洲货运航线的合作协议,该航线将于2018年的第三季度生效。 2017年6月,国泰航空向阿特拉斯航空湿租了2架波音747-8F货机,提升了亚特兰大、芝加哥、迈阿密和阿姆斯特丹之间的货运服务班次,并提高了墨西哥的货运服务能力。 2017年上半年,中国大陆的出口强劲,特别是跨太平洋航线。 2017年上半年,中国大陆冷链货物的航空货运需求增加。 2017年上半年,印度区域的航空货运进出口的需求旺盛。 2017年上半年,亚洲区域内的航空货运需求高于去年同期。 2017年上半年,欧洲航线表现最为突出,受益于医药产品的货量增加。 自2016年11月以来一周两班的美国波特兰航线,由于市场需求旺盛,将于2017年9月起调整为每周三班。 南美航线发展迅速,与南美航空,Amerijet航空和阿特拉斯航空合作,推出国际联程航班。
